That wouldn't be a bad decision. I saw your other thread. THIS list is pretty slick for your price range. Its good advice.

phenom ii is better than bulldozer in any aspect, core per core, clock per clock, heat output, power consumption, price, everything.

Seeing as you already mentioned saving 100 a week from work, I think it would be a great idea to buy bits and pieces as sales come along. The great thing about games by Blizzard and Valve is that you don't need a top tier system to get playable performance with some eye candy. If you aren't in a rush to get everything all in one go I definitely suggest this route.

AMD Build:

CPU - 960T for performance, 955 for slight savings
Motherboard - Any reliable 990FX for performance, 970 board for savings
Ram - Any 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9 kit will do. Since you aren't likely to overclock the ram, the memory IC that gets used on them doesn't matter much. The kit you listed is fine, but look for alternatives that could potentially be cheaper!
PSU - Pick whatever model you can find for cheapest in Norway from this list. I suspect you will never need more than 500W, so use that as your ceiling.
GPU - I know I said that D3 will be pretty easy to run, but if you can snag a second hand 58XX or 68XX card from the AMD side, or a 460/560 (they are the same), 465/470, or 560Ti card you will be in decent shape for other games as well.

I hope pricing isn't as ridiculous in Norway as it is in places like NZ/Aus smile.gif

It is a better chip, but are you going to be getting a new GPU? you NEED a new GPU.
And you should be looking at intel chips, ALL of blizzard's games favor Intel over AMD. They are optimized for Intel such that even a Pentium dual core will keep up with an overclocked 960T.

You are going to be VERY unhappy with your computer since you have this GPU. Getting a better CPU will not make up for the GPU. You need a proper BALANCE of your parts.

If you cannot/will not listen to this, you should be looking into a llano/trinity chip. since they have better onboard graphics.

Ghostrider85 is right.

Not that I'm unhappy with the performance of my FX-4100 but I wish I had researched the differences between the two before I purchased. Might have saved me some money and gotten me better performance in the long run. But I was pressed for time and thought that "newer is better" lol.
