Default AMD Athlon II X2 240e & X3 435

If on the lookout for a budget processor, whether it be dual, tri or quad-core, there's no better place to look than AMD. The company recently released eight new models, and in total, nine current Athlon II's retail for under $100. We're taking a look at two such models here, the X3 435 and X2 240e, to see how much bang can be had for so little buck.
