is a amd 965 worth it at this moment in time as a decent upgrade - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I'd just wait to be honest only reason I upgraded to the 965be(as stated above) I had a ddr2 setup, it's not "BAD" but it's definitely not top of the line I get like 22000 scores on 3dmark but that is mediocre to what a SB platform is doing. Personally I would just wait for the bulldozer release and if it isn't what is made out to be go with a SB platform.

It would be help also to list what your "Current" system is. You can easily fill it out in user Cp options or just list your setup in this post.

I just upgraded to a 965 and i feel it was a good upgrade. I got chip for 110 new in box on ebay. board was 100 and it will be bd compatiable so i hear and the memory was 38 bucks for 4 gig ddr3 1600. I did have a x2 6000+ though very old. The upgrade with the same gtx460 gave me double the framerate in rift.
Worse than crack.
