960T is the better CPU out of the ones you listed, is there any reason you need 4 HDDs in raid 0? you should look into a small SSD if you neeed speed., Raid 0 offers no protection, if 1 drive goes, they all go. It is very risky imo.

Also, where are you buying from? or where are you located and what is your final budget? I couldnt find it in the first two pages, I only saw you mention microcenter, so I am guessing you are in the US.

i really have no idea what the difference is between the BD and PII, i know (from what everyone says) that PII will beat BD's ass, but how?

my phenom II 970 with hd6450 1gb gddr3 did worse than my BD fx-4100 with hd6450 1gb
Edit: Phenom II 970 was OC'd as well as the GPU, with the bulldozer (stocked) but gpu was ocd from 625mhz to 775mhz (same with the phenom II)

if you do indeed live near a microcenter you might be able to get the 960T for $90.

i was not going to recommend that mobo you picked but after reading this . . .

Fist post, just joined because of how impressed I am with this chip. It won't stop letting me push it further.
I picked up the CPU, ram, motherboard, power supply, and case at my local Micro Center all on sale for $185 with tax about 3 weeks ago. I've since installed a TX3 cooler, which was <$20. I figured overclocking would be limited by virtually every budget component I've purchased, wow was I wrong this chip rocks. I've crossed the 7.3 mark in Cinebench 11.5 and know I've still got some headroom to push further.
I'm holding off on trying for x6 @ 4.4+ GHZ until my OCZ Agility 3 Series 120G, and two additional 120mm fans show up next week. Temps at 4.2GHZ are approaching 60 @100%. No reason to burn this gem up, I can wait for the extra air flow. Push/pull with the TX3 will probably be on the agenda in a few weeks.
I must have gotten really lucky with this CPU because there is now way with this config I should be rockin' such a fast machine.
Phenom 960t/1605t ($90)- Gigabyte 78LMT-SP2 ($10) - Value Ram DDR3 1333 8GB ($30)
Congrats to everyone who got their hands on the 960t, absolutely the best value in the PC market without question.

i still don't. it is up to you.thumb.gif

how likely is it for me to unlock it with the gigabyte mobo?
post #69 of 142
50/50. even if it does not unlock it is more than enough for your 6770.
