I was just wondering what the best AMD CPU for gaming would be? I've never had an AMD before, but im building a Computer with an AMD right now, so I'd like to know which would be the best pick for me
Thanks a lot
the Phenom II 955 is an excellent choice, it has an unlocked multiplier for easier OCing, it has the same headroom as the 965 for less. As most games arent CPU limited the 955 performs similarly to the i7 and i5 in most games.
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGIBOX - Retail
I also noticed a very similar one that was 3.0Ghz and it had about 1000 more reviews on it.
