Ive been enjoying the power of an AMD phenom 2 x6 1090t for the last 48 hrs and here are a few observations.

I've had the unique pleasure of upgrding from amd's lowest end X2 240 to their highest end phenom x6 whilst keeping everything else the same. (Changed my psu to antec tpn 650). My config is mentioned in my sig.. These observations apply to both proccys at stock speeds.

1)My Idle ram usage in win7 has gone up from 800mb to 1.2-1.25 gb.. Wonder if its the scheduling and sync overhead for the extra cores?

2)This is related to gaming. As usual I ran the crysis frost bench first and i was shocked! I used to get 20fps avg at enthusiast settings on the x2 and i got 21fps avg on the x6! I started to regret upgrading.. Gameplay was more or less the same.

3)Disappointed. I just randomly started playing a few games to check out how things go.. I was again shocked when i played games like NFS HP,GTA Episodes and black ops! These games started perfoming ULTRA smooth at 50-60 fps with highest settings!! I couldnt believe my eyes! Looks like the bottleneck was finally removed!

4)Pleased with the progress, I played GTA4 and to my surprise it was not as smooth as Episodes from liberty city! (both clients upgraded to latest version)

5) This made me realize that theres been a change in the pc gaming community from about 2008-2009ish! Looks like these games have been optimised for quad cores. (two of my cores were always underused). This is good shift I feel as most ppl wud go for a good processor and a mid range graphics card( non hardcore gamers i mean) And its awesome that ppl can enjoy games at the best settings.

6) Apart from that the processor somehow has made my RAM work better. Windows performance scores have improved and windows load time/ game load times are significantly faster.

Well thats abt it.. Other than the raw power of the x6, I was surprised to find the very obvious shift towards optimised quad core based games. I guess most ppl may know this but still! Just wanted to share my observation. So ppl still stuck with dual cores.. Guess its a nice time to look into upgrades!
This is exact reason I tell everyone that the x6 isnt worth it. My 955 has been overkill for me really.

Crysis will not show improvement because of the GPU.

Your monitor is Benq G2220 HD which I found has a 1920x1080 resolution and combined with a 5750, I think that's your problem.

Personally I would have sold the 5750 and the dual core and gotten an Athlon IIx4 pr PhIIx4 and a GTX460 which would come around to the same price of the 1090.

Edit:That's just me.

for an upgrade it would probably drastically improve your performance if you get some faster ram (1066mehz-1333mhz) then your gpu would be the weak spot. try grabbing a 5870 when the resale prices are super low

I went from an AMD X2 5200 to the 1090T.... what an upgrade ,lol! Anyone who does their homework realizes that fully optimized hexa-core usage is a little down the road; but not far enough down the road that the 1090T is useless. If you already have an AMD quad-core, then you should definitely wait it out for the next series of chips; but anyone building up a new system should consider the 1090T. At 4.0GHz with a 9800GTX I get stable FPS around 90-100 on maxed out settings (1440x900) in Black Ops; while I know people with i7s and SLI'ed 400 series cards that don't get that.... and all six of my cores get used plenty while in game

ehh i upgraded from a 955 and i'm pretty satisfied, OC's better, runs cooler, 2 more cores, smoother everyday usage
