I went with these parts because of their availability, low price, and in the case of the 790FX, the ability to upgrade to a Phenom FX once they are released by AMD. I'll probably save to get a better video card once ATi releases the 4000 series cards, but continue to run with my 7800GT until that time.
Yes, I will be overclocking the hell out of this processor and the real goal for me here is to be able to actually play Age of Conan....or whatever the hell else I decide to outside of FSX and Crysis. I'd also like to just finally be rid of my single-core processor. Any thoughts on this?
one time tried to come in my home take my chrome i said yo its on
take cover son or youre assed out
how do you like my chrome then i watched the rookie pass out
didnt have to blast him but i did any way
young punk had to pay

In my sig, but I have a Corsair HX520W. Should be more than enough for this setup, but I'll probably need to upgrade once the 4000 series cards come out. When that happens, I'll probably get a PC&P 750.
I think the on CPU memory controler helps the AMDs compete with low cache.
I've heard AoC is set up to use 4 cores. I may be wrong, but if so, even a crappy AMD quad would spank a good dual core. the 9850be runs $235, just make sure your mobo suports it.
