There's no such thing as an "atholon".

You need to be more specific about the CPUs. Is it a Phenom or Phenom II? X2, X3 or X4? What's the model number? Same goes for the ATHLON.

✔ Best Answer
I take it you mean a Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition vs an Athlon II X3 450? If you look at the chart I posted in my other response, both CPUs are in the same grouping, meaning that they have similar performance. However, if you have a decent motherboard & a little bit of luck (plus know-how), you should be able to overclock the Phenom simply by raising the multiplier, & you may be able to unlock the 4th core & convert it to an X4.

In other words, the Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition is the better choice.
