CPU : Phenom II X6 1055T
Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 for sure
mainly because
  1. its 8+2 Phases cooling
  2. x16/16x CF/SLi thumb.gif
at what price are u getting it ???
G.skill 4GB RipJawX 1600mhz for sure it only 400 buck more then the Corsair value pack thumb.gif
Sapphire 6770 and 5770 are the same there is no difference between them in fact the 5770 is more costlier tongue.gif
i recently when to lamington road and inquired about the X6and the best deal i got was 1055T and AsRock 870 Extreme 3 @ 12.5k thumb.gif

CPU : Phenom II X6 1055T (cheap and very effective)

Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 (cheap and good for OC'n)

Like Tarun said thumb.gif

Plus I have them as well and they are pretty bloody great biggrin.gif

The 1600Mhz G.Skill is the way, will allow for an easier OC biggrin.gif

Difference between the cards is only mainly in the HDMI connection 5770 has 1.3 and 6770 has 1.4 So your choice wink.gif

IMO look for a better GPU

But FX is the new series right?? And its good for multithreaded apps like 3D surface rendering or video encoding/decoding. Actually I'm suggesting to one of my friend. He play games. But may require to use heavy mechanical kinda software's in future(Yeah. He's going to become Mechanical Engineer).
Also I heard bad comments about gigabyte nobo's that they don't support higher power dissipation. Some heatsinks on mosfet are absent or like that??rolleyes.gif
Confusion!

what exactly are you looking for. the better performance? or are you trying to save money?
post #7 of 14
I would recomend the PH II 960T and a 990FX based motherboard yes the 960T is a 4 core but pople are have good succss at unlocking the other 2 cores making it a 6 core
post #8 of 14
I reccomend getting a used Phenom2 X4 or even an FX4100. No point in spending a whole bunch on x6 or FX 6 or 8xx when Piledriver is around the corner. Get a temporary CPU, everything else go all out.
