Upgrading my rig, need advice (1090T or FX-8150)

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Came across some cash (Thanks tax returns) and I am dead set on getting the Crosshair V Formula Mobo, yet I am on the fence as to which CPU I wish to use. I am not going Intel again this time and have been looking at the 1090T or the 8150 for primarily gaming.

EDIT: My friend hooked me up with a brand new in the box 980BE CPU.

Case: HAF-X
Mobo: Crosshair V
CPU: 980BE quad-core OC to 4.2ghz
RAM: 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance
GPU1: 460ENGTX 1GB
GPU2: 460ENGTX 1GB
PSU: X4-750W
CPU Cooler: H60 Push/pull.

Was thinking this will suffice for decent framerates in current and upcoming games (Guild Wars 2, Arkham City, GTA4, ETC).


However I am completely perplexed with reviews and numbers between the 1090T and the 8150.

THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!

1090t is better than the FX 8150.

Maybe go for a 1055t fi you want to save a few bucks and OC through the HTT way instead of the multiplier the 1090t has. Your board is more than capable of OC'n a 1055T through the bus way.

My choice would be 1090t though out of the chips meantioned.

I'd say 960T or 1090T.

1090T it is then!

My local Compusa has then for about $199.99 on the shelf and I will order the Crosshair V and the Ram off Newegg.
Can't wait to play some games on a faster and more robust rig than my always crashing Q6600/775 socket Asus SLI board!

Thanks guys!

1090T ... even though I have the 1100T and I think it is the best CPU I have ever laid my hands on. thumb.gif from what I hear, Bulldozer FX's are not as powerful as the 1100T or the 1090T.

Hope this helped. smile.gif

the FX 8120 is a better buy than an 1100t. Both overclocked FX wins most if not all the time. Unless you are planning to run at stock settings, FX is the best bet.

Saying a 1090t is "better" than a FX 8150 is just wrong. It really is benchmark specific. FX is more future proof i believe.

check out my blog for some results

Also, i am confident that an 1100t will bottleneck two 6950s.
