By the way, how much did you pay for your Phenom II x6 1100t if I may ask?

Gaming, some graphic design and programming. I'd rather be prepared

I made my own thread anyway, don't wanna hijack this one lol.

Anyway, you need to get that AMD notion out of your head.

Grab a 25 or 2600K and be done with it .........

Many will not like this statment, but the preformance simply speaks for itself
So, your an AMD Hater, huh? TROOLOLOL.

you can drop your ram in and i assume you can use phenom I's in am3+
Phenom I doesn't have DDR3 controller. Won't work.

----------------------------------------------------------

The logical upgrade path is to either pick up a sandy mobo/cpu now, or wait a few weeks to see what happens with BD.

Keep in mind, that while at launch, AM3+ is likely to be the BD socket for consumer boards, it is very likely that G34 socket systems will make their way to consumer oriented boards at some time. G34 supports quad-channel memory.... I'm not sure if dual channel at 1333 would cause any bottlenecks on the new BD architecture or not. Currently, on phenom based systems, 1333 memory speeds in dual channel are adequate. BD supports 1866 speeds in dual channel natively, and that may be done on purpose to ensure there are no memory bottlenecks. Quad-channel 1333 would be yet another leap in performance above dual channel 1866.

I'm just thinking... since you bought a bunch of 1333 speed memory, it might be better utilized on a G34 socket board, ...if they do in fact make consumer boards in the near future with G34 sockets.
