Unfortunately that list requires him to pick up from Microcenter for the CPU redface.gif

Although you're still within that 50 dollar buffer you stated when you get it shipped from Amazon.

That 965 should be able to play anything your 650ti can run well. Upgrading to a piledriver chip or even a 8350 imo would be a waste. Get a decent board and OC it. should hit 3.9 easy with decent cooling. Make sure to get at least 8 gigs of ram.

While I agree that the 965 will be sufficient, I think grabbing an 8350 would be a pretty big upgrade if nothing else just for the OCability. An 8350 at 4.5-5ghz will far outperform any realistic OC on the P2

Yes but my argument is that a mildly OC'ed 965 will do anything a 650ti can. The 8350 will outperform it in stuff like Winrar extracting, and boot times and encoding but at games the 650ti would be the limiter.

It really depend on what games we are talking about. Most will be gpu limited, but games like skyrim or bf3 on a server with a bunch of players will cause the CPU to bottleneck.

The P2 965 was great, but it's served it's time in the enthusiast world. If you have the budget I would say its worth the upgrade.

When I had the 965 in, it was oc to 4.0 and I won't do anything below 8gb of ram I'm not playing very demanding games and I have my SIG rig for everything else. So now I'm debating a 970 or the 990fx mobo. Do I spend the extra money on a 990 or save money and get a 970 I'll eventually get a new CPU and video card, most likely an HD 8870, and the 8350.

Would something like this fit you? You'll have 990FX and still have ~120 bucks to save for a CPU/GPU upgrade.

There's even a combo deal with that motherboard where you can get a FX-8150 with it for $179.99.

That's perfect that is the board I was looking at anyways and the 550 will be perfect. If I'm going to get the 8 core I think I'm just going to hold out for the 8350

You must be talking abouT skyrim online. Cuz i play skyrim with my i3-550 and a 6850 with most setting maxed besides aa and it plays flawlessly. And from i saw from the list pf games he plays bf3 isnt on there. But i do see warframe.

Im just saying its a waste to spend a ton of extra cash when your not going to pmay a ton of demanding games.
