Amd cpu question Tags: CPUs Gaming Quad Core AMD Overclocking Last response: August 5, 2009 3:35 AM in Overclocking Share 4lc4pon3 August 5, 2009 1:30:42 AM ok im going for pure gaming here no apps or anything else. i want to stick with AMD cause at the moment the i7 is a bit more then i can afford. AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor out of these 2 CPUs are you going to see a big difference in gaming? More about : amd cpu question xtc28 August 5, 2009 2:56:26 AM both are basically the same unless you are going to OVerclock. 955 BE if so. the 200 Mhz difference doesnt do too much good really. It takes more than that to show a big improvement to the eyes. If no OC is required go with the 945.

It's 10.00$ for every 100Mhz... hehe If you are not overclocking like xtc28 said..... then just get the 945, but don't complain later on in the forums that you can't overclock and that your chip is outdated.... hehe Related resources Quick question about upgrading an AMD CPU - Forum Question about cpu temps and suggested overclock for amd fx 6350 black box - Forum CPU Voltage Confusion and AMD Overdrive Question - Forum AMD cpu question - Forum AMD CPU question - Forum Can't find your answer ?
