Help me choose MB +CPU - Page 2

post #11 of 15
For what you need, the phenom X4 955its great, and if you need more power you can overclock it; and as Drybones5 says, theres no much diference in price between Athlon II x4 640 and the phII 955, I think the 20$ of diferecnce worth.

And about the mobo, I love asus, not only for its quality, also beacause its price/quality relaction (it´s said than way??); but if you cant affor one, an msi its great. BUT af you say, if you want Bulldozer support, just wait few weeks, you´ll get better performance for a better value.

Oh, the memory, you have 2gb 1333 for those programs dont you need more now? 4gb would be great, and quite cheap

mmm great question 555 vs 640.

i think an 555 unlocked to x4 is better than the 640

Well I don't recommend unlocking the 555 on any of those boards due to VRMs and TDP

i took the elite group + 640

there is a chance if i took the 555 that i will stuck with a dual core CPU

also here i think i have chance in unlocking the third level cache any ways thanks
i know i cheaped out at the board

but i lost a couple of bucks on my way to market

:|

i was aiming to get the 630a due to the ram support
