it doesn't have acc. just wait for the release of those new nforce chipsets if you want to go nvidia. otherwise, amd 790 chipset series with sb750 is the one for you

9950 is great on the cheap but other then that the new PhII X3/X4 are the way to go and if you want overclocking with AMD, you pritty much have to stick to AMD chipsets. As long as you don't want to go SLI your golden.

AM3 phenom 2 x3 processors work just fine in AM2 boards. im currently running a 720 BE @ 3.8ghz on my gigabyte AM2 board and im actually satisfied with what i have.(usually i find something i dont like so i get something new lol) really cant go wrong with a 790GX am2+ board and a phenom2 x3 or x4.

you just won't stop, will you?

720be pawns every e5xxx, e7xxx and the e8xxx (clock for clock) by means of performance and pricing period!


sorry but that's just the truth. now stop being such a fanboy by recommending intel builds in an amd thread. you'll just get pawned here
