yeah no problem, that's why I said I would do it lol! sorry for taking some time to respond as well firefox is having issues again!!!! is thee a bench mark that you would like to know the numbers from? and as far as programs are concerned I really only have Adobe cs5 that my daughter uses for animation stuff so I can have her do some stuff to push it I guess. is there some thing else I can do to help you decide? of coarse my thing is do I want to buy the CH IV extreme and the 1090t or do I stay or do I buy just the 1090t god I hate this lol never ending upgrades I miss the old days ware a computer was great for at least 2 years

Will a better cpu affect your graphics performance? For example: if i kept every thing in my system the same, including my gpu, would an X6 boost graphics performance? (of course my msi board wouldn't support that, but i'm planning to fix that soon. This is just a hypothetical question.)
Well as you are currently using programs that DO utilise the 2 extra cores, you might be better off staying with a x6. Though, nealry all the x2 and x4's can be unlocked by certain motherboards and you'll get 2 extra cores for free
As for your second question, that's a good one. I think it is dependant on the program you are running. Games nowadays need a decent gpu, and a decent processor comes up second. I would imagine that programs like CS and photoshop thrive off a decent vid-card too but i'm sure someone with the right knowledge has already advised you or will soon.

I think only the X4 960t was unlock-able correct me if I am wrong

This thread died when he said he was only going to use it for blu-ray playback.

Buy something cheap, get a 9800GT for $50 and you're set. No need to overclock.

I must of missed that one, but I think he is using for more than that, like Adobe cs5 and video editing and stuff which does use the cores but not sure how much of an improvement it will be for him, I don't think he was asking about vid cards

-SHRUG- Not too concerned about a certain benchmark. WEI would be fine for the cpu graphics test. Even if it just pushed it up a little it would answer my question. I'm pretty sure it helps out, just want to be sure I guess.

Your current mobo seems pretty suited for an X6 to me. But hey what do I know. I'm just a noob.

Yah



But I missed the video/photo editing part. I'd say a 1055t, spend the extra money on a better video card.

This is assuming time to finish is a concern of yours, even low end x4's would perform well enough for the average joe.

Also from what I hear you'll want to go with a nvidia video card, as they can help in both video and photo editing.

well I can tell you the x2 to x4 wei scores now because I remember the cpu score before was 5.9 with the x2 and now with the x4 is 7.5

OOOOOPs I don't know if you mean the graphics part or the cpu part now please clarify

Yeah, I have adobe Photoshop CS5, adobe Premier, and adobe illustrator, and of course the blu-ray. I already have the nvidia card (GT 220) that is CUDA enabled and it is utilized in CS5 already so that's nice.

I may just get the new mobo and unlock my X2 to X4 and see what BD is like before I get the 1090T. But then on the other hand by then the 1090 may be $150. Which would be fine with me.

Any other thoughts?

well that sounds like the winner there! the new mother board would be the best choice, if you only want to do one at a time. I guess I should of asked your budget, then would of just made it clear that that would be the best first step
