post #31 of 54
it seems likke u really want bulldozer so what i would do is, sell ur mobo + cpu to ur friend like u said. then get a good but value priced mobo + cheapish cpu like an athlon II X3 (very good gaming CPU's!) therefore u have a good combo of cpu and mobo for right now that u havent spent too much money on.
because u havent spent too much money, wen bulldozer cums out u will have more funds (due to saving on mobo + cpu right now) then u could buy the bulldozer and mobo together to get optimal performance ! i personally wouldnt buy a mobo right now and expect it to be good for bulldozer, ur better off getting a new mobo that is made for bulldozer just like people have been getting the 8xx series mobos for their 6-core thuban's coz they are made with eachother in mind.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157176 this mobo seems good for the price, and being so cheap means u would already be saving money towards bulldozer

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103843 this is a good gaming cpu at a great price and would again savecash that could go towards bulldozer

now you'v only spent $136 which is less than u would pay for a good 890fx mobo that may need upgrading wen u get bulldozer to get optimal performance from bulldozer. and u cud sell ur cpu wen u get bulldozer or just keep it as a spare gaming cpu

Ya, the only CPU intensive thing I do right now is Sins. The bottleneck (and god dam* it's a bottleneck) is the internet connection which I cannot possibly upgrade...He bought the computer he has now from my cousin(I had first pick at it...) for $90. Which included RAM, CPU, Mobo, and an "ANTEC 900". He's upgrading it a bit, after buying my GTX280 also.

Hey there...I'd Like to stop you from buying an athlon x3 or x4...They really suck...ATM I have one but just bought my 930...seriously they are not worth it,they only brought me into problems...I d suggest you buy a 955 ,or even try to make a 555 955 but anyways without thinking about the Athlon CPU's.I am really disappointed of my cpu and would never suggest any type of gamer to buy it...

Ya I'm shooting for something a bit higher. Until Bulldozer, I might hold on to this or get a 555. Quad core would be overkill for everything except SINS at this point.

Corsair H50 purchased for $63, will be installed when I get home from work. I think I'll need a 2nd 120mm fan, thoughts?

Push/pull on that h50 will definitely give you better temps

I have unlocked a couple of those 550s and they rock for ~$80 Definitely one of the best budget CPUs out there... maybe even of all time!

Mine won't unlock to 4 stable, and 3 only gets me 3.5 GHz ._.; I'm trying to find the specs on the 120mm fan that it comes with, as I may replace it with a blue/green LED fan(s).

Edit: 3.4 Ghz and 1.225 volts right now, going to OC the hell out of it when I get this installed (And figure out the thermal paste stuff).

only pushing 1.225 volts to that thing? Did you try pushing ~1.45-1.48 to it and see if you can get all 4?

1.225V is nuthin man!

I also am unsure of the color scheme. Right now it's got a green LED fan on the exhaust, and the Green LEDs from the case. I'm thinking about adding some blue towards the rear, maybe on the exhaust.
