And I would hold off on the thuban. Am3 is dying out and 1090t is like the last best thing. At least wait for am3+ so you leave yourself an upgrade path.
This.
I'm skipping AM3 since AM2+ supports every chip AM3 supports.

I'll just get a 950 since it's only 10-15% slower and having 24GB of ram more than makes up for the speed. I doubt any game would max out a SB or a 950 at eyefinity resolutions and I can run ArmA 2 from a RAMDISK which is recommended at large draw distances, else you studder from constant disk access. I'm using a broken screen laptop with a pentium dual core with external monitor and a Socket A monolith, anything would be an upgrade.
