AMD 955 or 970 significantly better than Q6600 or E8400? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I just came from an E8400 build with decent specs, and yes my build below (which is something similar to what you're seeking) is WAY faster. I mean, not even close in comparison. The old rig ran bf3 on medium and almost keeled over, this one eats it up on ultra.

P.S., the whole rig + 23" LED LCD ran me about $620
