Their are no real decent 9 series chipsets with integrated video,just HTPC stuff.
so I've got a question
hes already got a asus 785 something mobo with
4 gigs 667 ram
how much if any performance increase is he gonna see by putting in a Phenom II x2 560 (potentially x4 B60)
(hes coming from a Athlon x2 4800+)
I know the increase in Performance will be quite a bit just from the CPU
but how much difference will he see if he just runs it in the 785 board as opposed to say a 970 chipset?
