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.

Thanks

The X3/5870, if it's only for gaming. The extra GPU power would help game, and triple cores are actually better for gaming than quads.
