For purely gaming I would say 955 but since you will be doing other stuff too, go for a 1055T.

Nice motherboard pick, I want a 870 Extreme too lol. Also consider Biostar TA870U3+, they're both great bang-for-buck boards.

You wouldn't happen to know if you can SLI hack it?

You can SLI hack it, but it will run at 16x-8x which is not optimal
The ASUS M4A79XTD EVO may be more optimal

Most games these days STILL only use 2 cores. One game that does use more than 2 is RIFT, there might be more that actually use more cores but most game software hasn't made that adaptation yet. So now that's clear, Let talk about the right processor for your gaming needs. the 1055T runs at 2.8 per core and a 955 runs at 3.2 per core. The 1055t will switch to 3 cores and run a little faster (3.3 with turbo core on). so for games it is running at .1 ghz faster than a 955 BE. then ask yourself if this .1 ghz is worth the additional $$ you are going to fork out. you will notice no difference between a 955 BE vs a 1055t when playing Crysis as both will run with 60 FPS with a DirectX 11 Compliant video card. I don't expect much from the future of 6 core processor at least for a while as software will need to catch up. Also there is rumor that the 6 core is the limit until the 12 cores come out (skipping the 8 and 10 cores) which i find interesting since the newer PS3 actually has an 8 core in it. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but make sure you have the proof to show me. Yes the Benchmarks will improve with a 1055t vs a 955BE because it actuall uses ALL the cores. but the reason why i say the 955BE is better than i 1055t is because its al about the Ghz of the proccessor speed. 2.8ghz 6 core is slower than a 3.2ghz 4 core for games. However the 6 core can be swtiched to turbocore and jump to 3 cores at 3.3 ghz. hmmm, since most games use 2 cores the 1055t would win. But when they make games that run on 4 cores they might also run with 6 cores as well. Never know but its possible. If not then a 955BE would outperform a 1055t with turbo on if the game runs on a 4 core level ( 3 cores at 3.3 vs 4 cores at 3.2). I could go on forever about this issue but this is my 2 cents.

Good luck and enjoy your Computer whichever processor you choose!

Alot of games use 4 cores.

Let's just say, any game that needs 4 core support, will have it.

Bad company 2 and World of Warcraft use up to 8 threads.
