"The X3 line can add some performance to a sub-$200 processor
purchase while at the same time saving AMD from losing revenue on lost parts
by salvaging some quad-core failures at the fab; and we all know they need
that. If you are on the hunt for a low-cost computer then you should
evaluate your own usage habits and decide how you value 200 MHz in clock
speed compared to an extra core of processing and make the leap from there.
If you are comfortable with overclocking as well then the X3 8750 might
offer you even more value for your buck with some simple BIOS adjustments."
