which CPU should I get - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Phenom II's don't even compete with Sandy Bridge. Their only competition performance-wise are Core 2 Quad's and cheaper 32nm i5's and i3's. Even the i5 750 would be a better buy in almost every regard than any Phenom II, and since the i7 9xx's blow Phenom II's out of the water and Sandy Bridge is up to 5% faster clock-for-clock than Nehalem and more overclockable...

The 1100T is a rip. If you buy an X6, get the 1055T. In case you didn't know, "Black Editions" actually don't overclock any better. I had a Phenom II 945 that could hit 4.2GHz 1.55v.


Edit: also I don't understand why a lot of tards are getting DDR3 2000 for their Phenom II's. Phenom II can only take advantage of DDR3 1333, and any higher is a waste and a strain on the memory controller!
