The FX 8120 is probably the best AMD processor to buy right now, for the price. Thanks for the feedback! Benchmarks continue April 20th! Got my gigabyte 990FXUD7 rev 1.1 board with LLC controls, and 8 Gb Dual Channel - Team Xtreem 2400 Mhz Cl9 memory.

will my OCZ Fatal1ty 550w be enough power for a mild OC on a 8120 (3.8-4.0ghz) with a 560ti?

It should be enough with a single gtx 560 ti! the actual power draw will be close to 500w, and your PSU is probably good up to 600W give or take.

All you will be getting upgrading from a 4.1 Ghz to a 4.6 Ghzish fx 8120, is more scaling, as single for performance will be roughly the same. Scaling for your four core ~3.94, Scaling for the FX 8120 ~ 6.66 . Gaming performance will be near identical with a single gtx 560 ti.

Well guys, it appears that the 990fx motherboards are discontinued and therefore i wont be getting the REV 1.1 990fx UD 7 afterall...
So I guess I'll wait for the 1090fx boards to be released soon frown.gif
