If you can spent the money, just go for the X6. For $30 difference I would just go for that one. Tip: Watch the motherboard you buy if you go with the X6. The older motherboards may have problems with the X6.
Edit: it's a $40 difference :P Still, if have the money I'd go for the X6
I am actually running both of them (two separate machines by the way) and I have yet to see a difference in performance. I just don't have any processes that will truly open them both up. Truthfully, you can do pretty much whatever you want and save about $40.00 by going with the Phenom II X4.

I'd pick the Phenom II X4 965 Black Editon
(It just broke the world record in overclocking!)
Because it's $160, that's why!
Now onto something more important...
BULLDOZER ZAMBEZI is the name to learn about mate, before you go with an old processor..
