hi

the boards
is this

MA785GT_UD3H

i'll use it with a 550 phenom

or if i could get a more cach i'll get 1055t X6


what do you think


or should i forget the amd thing
and get a

I5 or I7 based system the thing is

i found i7 1366 mainboard is kind of too expensive

The GA-MA785GT-UD3H (rev. 1.0/1.1) http://www.gigabyte.us/search/search.aspx?kw=MA785GT_UD... does support the Phenom II X6 1055T {6-core}. Here's a full list {1.1} of supported CPUs - http://www.gigabyte.us/support-downloads/cpu-support-po... ALL cores will be supported on that list.

The extra cores won't offer much for gaming, AMD vs Intel is "flavor of ice-cream" question; I prefer "now" i7. And a question of budget. For gaming a quad-core is sufficient and take the savings and get a better GPU.

well i want to use the new system for applications Like Flash , after effect ,photo shop

so I'm with two options get this board with an 550 Phenom and open it's locked cores


or to squeeze my self and cut on the graphic card and get the 1055t



the second thing should i get an i5 vs the 1055t will it be better for my work
i know it will cost me more cuz the intel Mobos are much more expensive


i was thinking for the GPU 4670 from ATI with the x6
or the 5770 with the 550



thanx for the replay

Thanks so Intel it is


any good promotion

indeed a cheap board with a good cpu
the board and the CPU must be around 250 $ intel based
and the gpu around 100 $
