The reason i say this is i have heard the northbridge heatsink does not always make contact to the chipset. Please give me your feedback. Thank you.

Btw the rig i will be making is:
AMD phenom ii X6 1090t
asus crosshair IV formula(maybe...)
4gb 2x2gb gskill ripjaws ddr3 1600mhz
corsair h50
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.
This & below.

If you buy 1055T that's a solid CPU. I'm getting 955 which would save you $150 if you got that instead so you could put it toward a high end 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.

Well assuming the bulldozer costs 300-500$ I am just going to make a bulldozer "fund" persay. like 50% of what i make a month goes to that while the other 50% is spread out.

Well considering that Thuban has two price points of $100 difference I figure BD will go $350 and $450 respectively for the AM3 version. Maybe less considering 965 BE was selling at $189 when Thuban dropped.

So honestly, you may want to hold off since no program is coded for 6 cores and most games are coded for 2. If you want faster then it's in the GPU, RAM and HDD performance. 955 BE is the best OC'er in the Phenom II 4 core lineup.

I would definitely add a asterisk to that comment, with C3 stepping. My C2 doesn't like anything above 3.6 even with 1.5+ vcore.

Dustin if I was you I would get one of the 100 dollar quads and buy a 5850 man. That would be a rockin system, and since BD is already gonna come out you can just keep working and buy it new when it comes out and have the latest and greatest! Thats what I would of done. You have great grammar and you picked out some quality parts, except that case. Lian Li or SilverStone all the way man.
