X4 960T vs X4 955 for new build

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Which one should I get? I want a cheap good gaming CPU. Bulldozer failed me anyways. The 690t unlocks into a six core, and is only $10 more. But does it perform just as good as the 995?

Also will be getting a 990fx motherboard, so I would be able to upgrade down the line if I choose.


Motherboard will probably be the Crosshair V.

What are the chances of unlocking? Also thinking of going a 960t rather then 1090t

That's what I want to know. Not too many people seem to have them.

960T would be better.

I think the 955 is still on Deneb. The 960T for sure is Thuban. Get the 960T

So the 960T will be better no matter what? Sounds good.

Just found out you need a certain board to unlock or bios. Would mine or the ops be able to unlock it?

I really want the CPU solely for the purpose of unlocking lol I think mines able to, as I have the hole "hybird mode" bios thing but my comp crashed when I tried unlocking my current one so not sure.

If you are starting from scratch, why not get an i5-2500K setup?

Money plain and simple. I'm reusing everything except for the cpu,mb, and ram. For the 2500k that would add $100 for the cpu, and ~$100 for an equivalent motherboard.
