Help with my new gaming PC - Page 2

post #11 of 17
this is about building the best Gaming PC. an x6 is completely useless in this regard. If OP can afford it a core i5 2400 or 2500k would be advisable if not then a phenom x4 955+ and a good 990FX motherboard

The only reasonable suggestion is to wait until BD comes out the prices on the phenom II drop....THEN get the 1100T

How....I don't even...

With BD and sandy bridge available you suggest...thuban???

If he ever wants to crossfire he is gonna bottleneck.

You quoted my text at one point and said it was fantasy land, and yet I provided proof to my statement...you only provide, opinion...and one with zero personal experience on the matter.
