If you do decide to go the route of either the 1055 or 1090T dont bother getting triple channel memory as those AMD cpu's don't support it.

But honestly at this point in time with both AMD and Intel getting ready to release there new CPU's you should consider waiting to see what both Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge bring to the table before buying anything new.

1090t with a good video card (maybe 2 6950's or a gtx580) will eat up games quite nicely.

Everything on bulldozer is just hype right now. There are no benchmarks, no leaks.. nada. Sandy Bridge will be better to game on compared to everything Amd currently makes.. Sorry but it's just the truth.

Honestly sounds like a nice 2500K, P67 UD3, 4GB DDR3 2000 is perfect for exactly what you plan on doing. Also the 2500K with a good air cooler will be pushing 4.4Ghz+.

2500K - 229.99

P67 UD3 - 112.99

I'm speaking from experience as i had a 4Ghz X6 which i dumped for a 4.2Ghz 760 which i then dumped for this 2600K.

X6 ran hot, overclocked like crap and loved to eat voltage. A 2500K overclocked to a balmy 4.2-4.4Ghz will game a lot better then an X6 at 4Ghz. Hell even my 760 at 4.2 was a better gamer then the X6. I KNOW how touchy you X6 owners are but the truth hurts. Shall i compare? What is that 56fps difference between an I7 at 4Ghz compared to an X4 at 3.5? If an X6 at 3Ghz can't even keep up with an I5 at 2.66ghz. What makes you think it will when both processors are clocked at 4Ghz?

... I'll wait for the.. "NB wasn't at 3Ghz" excuse....

where on that list is a 1090t and/or a 2500k? that only shows black ops and im pretty sure there are more games than just black ops. you are quick to get graphs that favor intel. i take everything you say with a grain of salt since you seem to be on intels payroll. im not touchy about the x6 being that im going to a 2600k on release...


OP any option you take will be more than adequate for gaming... it comes down to how much you are will to spend vs what you want. goodluck.

Jean-Luc, are the dates listed in your 12 days until Sandy Bridge accurate? Also, can anyone tell me what the K means in the model numbers.

That brings up a questions, can you use RAM made for Intel for AMD? Not many companies out there produce loads of RAM specifically made for AMD.
