Need Help Upgrading Proccessor?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, to start off here are my specs.

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2096564

Sapphire hd 5830
Asus M4A88T-M Usb 3.0
600Gb Hdd
4Gb 1333 corsair value Select single stick
Zalman 92mm Led copper Cpu COoler
Antect earthwatts 650
Athlon II 450 Rana

Cpu Temp stays around 37c on normal load, never used prime95 before.

NOTE:CPU is over clocked and stable, 24/7 playing on it.

I'm looking to spend alot on my cpu so i will not have to upgrade it for awhile, i also want it to be able to do MULTIPLE task/ Running Multiple games, Screen Recording, ect..

I was thinking of getting the phenom ii x6 1090t, but would can it be oc'd and stable at 4.0ghz on water cooling?
8
Or would i be better off upgrading my motherboard, and going with the Zambezi series, like X6 FX-6100 3.3ghz, and X8 FX-8120 3.1ghz.

If so What motherboards and Zambezi do you suggest.

Based on the benchmarks released, I think your money would be better spent going for the Phenom II X6. Save the money you would've spent on a new mobo for a new graphics card.

Upgrade to FX if you want the multithreading ability, throw in a 1090T if you want the gaming muscle. Not that i think FX cant game, it can certainly OC and run cooler than Thuban or Deneb.

Saving money for a new video card is pointless, I'm going to upgrade in future(1yr) it plays all my games max. Furballzen, temps don't matter ill have a good enough cooler, i see people reaching 5ghz and MORE with the fx8120. Soo?
