post #11 of 36
Thread Starter 
but if i don`t oc then the AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition should be good for me really coz then i wouldn`t worry about trying to get my 965 to 3.8

Get an Intel i5 2500k for gaming.
Want to stay with AMD, wait for enhanced Bulldozer.

omg enhanced bulldozer lol.

what is that and when is it out lol.
post #14 of 36
As it's AMD there is no way in telling when it's out.
Maybe even a new revision of Bulldozer will help greatly.
But Komodo (FM2 socket) is due somewhere in the first half of 2012.

If you just wanna game, go for the i5 really...

The only time I will spend money on a Bulldozer is if they Guarantee that when they sort the CPU's shortfalls / inconsistencies out they will change it for the new revised edition free of charge,

You will not see any improvement to your X4 965...
Get a SSD instead and watch your desktop fly.
Something like a Crucial M4 128gb would be right.

how can i not see a improvement when most people on here are trying to get there rigs to 3.8 and the AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition is 3.8 ?

You can just overclock your current X4 965...
That won't cost you anything, but buying a brand new cpu will.

Also 400 MHz would result in a 10% fps increase max.

truthfully..i'd try a 1090-1100t if i was you..sandy bridge is faster in some areas..slower in others..
