Planning my next build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay guys, I am starting to plan my next build. The question is, should I buy a bulldozer, or get a 1090T/1100T?


I honestly don't really care about benchmark scores. I game, thats it. I O.C a little bit, only when I can't perform as needed in games. Do you think its worth spending the money on BD? Money is not a problem, and I wont buy until BD is out. Unless BD will kill games, then I may got for a hexicore.. The reason I am asking now, is because I am going to start saving money as of now, and depending on which CPU I go with, depends on how much money I will save away per week.

My thinking is that, no games are going to be coded around 8 cores, for a really really long time, so there is honestly no need for it.. because I just game. In my mind, I see the 1090T lasting in the gaming world for a really long time with a 4Ghz O.C (4 years ago we were on dual cores....now we tripled that, and soon to quadrupole that...)

BD is scheduled to come out around April (right?) So I expect price drops on all Phenoms within the weeks.





TL;DR) Should I save for a AMD hexicore or Bulldozer. I only want bulldozer if it will destroy games more than the 1090T or 1100T

Personally I would save for the BD and if its not up to the hype then get the x6 and purchase something else you want
