- Get 1090 because this CPU is BE can increase Multiplier CPU , U can see world record use mobo TA890FXE.
- 1055T multiplier CPU locked, and overclock depend on mobo + good RAM ,overclock via increase FSB. Raise FSB =raise RAM clock (auto)!
1055 Oc use FSB
1090 OC use FSB + Multiplier

^ agreed!! if you can afford 1090t I would do that it's easier to OC i have had them both. FSB oc is a little trickier. and 890 chipset are better oc'ers

@ henydiah 890FX boards ONLY support xfire.
as far as i know to SLI with an AMD cpu. u need an (outdated) nvidia chipset on your board.
the 890fx chipset is amd built hence no SLI

Ok i just been having a thought and was wondering if i would just be better off getting a phenom 965 be. My thinking is that this is cheaper than the 1055t but is at stock as fast as 1090t, Will overclock easier to. What do you think.

I would go with the 955BE for gaming as you want as much cash for the GPU as you can get.

Sorry it was 965 clocked at 3.4 i meant to say. Will this still be lighting fast in everday use and some hd video editing, just a couple hours here and there.

3.4 is pretty quick, it has the headroom to overclock as well. I would look at at black edition CPU as they are much easier to overclock. 965 or 1090 either good but I think the 1090 may have future uses for the hexacore. (But that was my thinking when I got mine)

ok i hear what your saying, but now im thinking of a i7 950 build. I cant take all this twoing and throwing, i need to make a decision soon. Im thinking i7 950 cause in a year or two i could throw in a i7 970 when prices have dropped. What you think.
