I currently have a phenom 720 unlocked 4th core at 3.6ghz. Im going to be buying a 5970 and would like to know if it would be better for me to buy me the new phenom 6core too? I heard its coming out in April.
No. I think that PII X3 720 with fourth core unlocked and OC'd won't have any problems, especially if you're gaming on high res.
4 cores is enough bro
Your CPU is enough to handle that card. You don't need a x6 for it.
