Need A CPU + Mobo Today! - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I don't recommend the 760 combo; LGA 1156 is ending, there will be no other options other than i7 8XX for upgrading and that's really it. AM3 has an indirect upgrade path (via AM3+ motherboard/AM3 CPU) to the Bulldozer architecture, which I'm sure will be better than the LGA1156 CPUs by a fair margin.
Try:
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO - $99, 84 AR (or the 89GTD or 89TD, they're both good)
Phenom II x4 955 - $135.50 due to combo deal loophole

And an X4 at 4Ghz is about as fast as a 760 at 3Ghz. Why are you recommending him that garbage?
