AMD gaming build questions Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Phenom Systems Last response: February 11, 2010 11:41 AM in Systems Share TomSah February 11, 2010 6:04:42 AM Hi there Im thinking of either: Phenom II X3 720 BE HD5870 Or Phenom II X4 955 BE HD5850 Will the X3 have a noticable bottleneck eeffect on the GPU? Which one is best for gaming, i dont plan to do any encoding etc Ideally id get the 955 + HD5870 but ive seen articles describing how the X3 720 holds its end up and is good value for a gaming setup.
