Thread Starter 
i have a crappy dual core (c2d)

i dont have mutch money now i am alredy a bit short but i am gonna ask my mom if she can give/lend me some money

will there be eny bottleneck with the 460 and the x4 955
i will be using 4gb ddr3 ram
and a cheap msi mobo (the rest like asus are out of my buget)

and what fps will i get in my fav games:
gta iv
crysis
mafia

i know all those games will run better on i5 760 frown.gif

plz dont tell me w8 for sandy brige or bulldozer i am in south africa so it will take like 2 weeks after relese to get here and if i now cant buy a i5 or a x6 whats the chance that i will buy the next gen cpus??

Yeah the 955 is good, it destroys bottlenecks and is very overclockable if you want to do that. Overall that's going to be a very good system and I would say its going to get about 60-70 fps on gta and about 30 on crysis at medium settings. As for mafia 2 it will play very well at about 40-50 fps. Hope this helped smile.gif

My 965 BE @ 4ghz doesn't bottleneck my 570, although I do score slightly lower than i7+570 platforms in vantage. i7 CPU's tend score higher in benchmarks but for gaming there is no difference that would justify spending twice as much on a CPU unless money is not a problem. You might get 1-2 FPS more for spending double the price of a 955 to buy an i7. For budget gaming builds 955/965 is the best value imho.

I am not an AMD fanboy at all, I would have bought an Intel i7 920 D0 instead of my AMD 965BE C3 had I been able to afford it at the time.

I'd really recommend a 1055T over a 955 BE. their prices are not that far apart imo but they're really worth it. given the advantages of 1055T with the 955 BE it's a no brainer for me. 1055t's overclock better, runs cooler, has better IMC and 2 free cores for your multitasking needs
post #6 of 23
jprovido is right come to think of it. I bought my 965 a long time ago when 1055t had a higher price I just checked and I can confirm price between 955 and 1055t doesn't justify buying a 955 anymore.

6 cores is an ok bonus for being a tad more futureproof but the Internal Memory Controller is much better, I've seen lots of 1055t's at 3ghz northbridge with way lesser volts than it takes me to hit 2.9.

Don't use more than two memory sticks with AMD if you want a high Northbridge/memory overclock.

Definitely go for the 1055t, good call jprovido + rep

Unless it's a high resolution(don't buy a 460 for high resolutions), it'll play Crysis just fine on high with a few settings on ultra high.

i will buy 1x 4gb ram and later buy another (3-4weeks later) so i will have 2x 4gb ram (8gb)
the mobo i gonna get only have 2 ddr3 ram slots

here(south africa) i can get the 955 for 1390 zar the 1055t is 1805 zar
thats a 415 South African rands = 60.975535 U.S. dollars

so u see its almost the same price as a 965 tho but still about 30 usd diff ( 965 -> 1055t)

so i just want a good cheap quad core that wont be bottlenecked and can play all games maxed out

edit: i gotten cod black ops / ac2 and nfs hp 2010 yester day tongue.gif
