Just a quick answer...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, right now I have an FX55 i just got but it just didn't make the jump I thought it was going to in FSX. Now I'm on the hunt for everything new. So just a simple answer will suffice. I really didn't know how to search for it. I like AMD stuff so far, but what socket am I going to need for future upgrades as far as multiple cores Socket A or AM2? I just didn't know how to search for it. Thanks for all the help!!!

Socket A has been dead for over a year if im not mistaken, am2 is also going to die soon. i would recommend you get a conroe as it best performance for the price.

also about the fx55 , the thing which makes it special is that its multiplyer is unlocked giving extreme capabilities for overclocking. also what was your rig before this

ok so conroe is where i need to be looking. I have tried playing around with overclocking, but I can't get it to stay stable, I think my ram is crap but I just don't have the patience for it, I went through the whole dropping timings down, but the FSB would only go up to 220 without locking up. This has been my system for a while just upping my processors one by one. Thanks for the help. So how bad would AM2 be to get though, is it going to support the quad stuff?

I think i may be going the conroe route especially if they already have 775 mobos that support quad cores. I just up a little system for about 1400.
Core 2 Duo 2.4/ P5N-E Sli/ 2x1gb kingston hyperX and a 8800GTX. Not too bad. Thanks for all the help.
