Default Quick-Gage: AMD's 125W Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition

People scoffed at AMD when it released its Phenom II X4 965 a few months ago thanks to the 140W power rating. To help make up for it, the company has now followed-up with a 125W version, sporting a lower price, along with improved C1E and DDR3-1333 support. With these improvements, is the X4 965 a first-choice CPU?

That's the wattage of the entire PC, not just the CPU. That'd be difficult to single out.
