Looking for a dual core of any sort for socket AM2/AM2+. A quad would work too, I guess.

I have had pretty good luck getting these chips to unlock to dual core. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103698&cm_re=single_core-_-19-103-698-_-Product It is a little risky, but at least you can RMA if it doesnt unlock. This is also assuming your board has a BIOS that allows AM3 CPUs.

It's for an OEM board, so no newer BIOS support for AM3. If I don't get anything here, I'm going to pull my current processor, and pick up a Ahtlon II X4.
