Btw the rig i will be making is:
AMD phenom ii X6 1090t
asus crosshair IV formula(maybe...)
4gb 2x2gb gskill ripjaws ddr3 1600mhz
ocz modxstream pro 700watt
nzxt lexa s case
250 gb seagate barracuda hdd(I hope to get a small ssd for the OS some time in the future.)
sony cd / dvd drive
9800 gt( I am trying to get my dad to pay an extra 100$ on the computer i am currently using so i can buy a 5770 atleast.
the computer I am using right now is a dell dimension e520 with a 1 core pentium at 3ghz. If thats not bad enough, i got the one with the BTX motherboard T_T.
I am also only 13 so any advice would be great.
Just buy the 1055 instead of the 1090, that should save you enough to get the 5770.
There is nothing wrong with the 6 cores but you'll also have the option of doing an 8 core processor not even a year from now more than likely when Bulldozer is unveiled.
