Hi, I am looking between the 965, 955, 1050t. I have read that the 955 & 965 are exact same thing with the 965 has
a factory oc, while others say its a little better. Anyways I am more concerned with the 1050t with it not being
a black edition and toms hierarchy chart shows it below the the 955/965!!
I just want to know what you would get if the 1090 wasn't an option??
I could get it but I don't think it would be worth the 100+ dollars. I personally have always had the 955 in my shopping cart, but I
want to make sure I am getting my moneys worth.
Do you think I should get the 955 over the 965 and 1050???
I play video games but I do a lot more multi tasking everyday, thanks for any feedback.
I am getting a gigabyte 890 and a tuniq tower 120 extreme on it, and I am putting it all into a HAF-X.
I have been reading a lot and the 1050 does better than the 965 in pretty much all non-video game applications some not by much.
In video games, from what I read the 965 usually beats it by at least 10fps each time, I probably couldn't tell the difference
in anything under 20fps and won't be a big deal mainly if its already 100fps's.
So like I said I don't play games as much as I multi-task all my apps. so I think I have a feeling that the 1050 is for me.
I don't think the 1090 would be worth the extra 100.
Check this review. U can find that the performance difference between the 965 and 1090T isn't big even in some benchmarks in better the 965.
Now, u are talking about the 1055T that is basically a 1090T downclocked to 2.8GHz an not BE. As u say the 1090T is overkill for ur needs and the 1055T is more expensive that the 965 BUT have more proof life because is a six core.
Now, the 955 is a very solid option price/performance since the difference with the 965 are only 200MHz that u can get with rise the multiplier on the BIOS but the 955 is a little old for this time.
Now the options are 965 or 1055T. From this two I would go with the 1055T since how more proof live and u can OC it to get the same 3.4GHz of the 965.
Well the 10$ difference between the 965 and 1050 isn't much, and from what you said the 1050 is an underclocked
1090 with the blackness.
That sounds great to me and from what I also have been reading is people getting good OC's out the 1050, I was afraid
the 1050 wouldn't OC the much on account it isn't a BE. But if I am able to work with it than I won't have any troubles getting it.
the 6 core CPU would help a lot in Rendering/video creativity/multitasking tasks, but there is currently not many games that support 6 cores, games are just moving on to quad. I suggest buying the 6 core cpu as it is future proofed and also if you play GTA IV that game to this day doesnt run good on High end pc's my quad struggles ure 6 core should run it smooth however.
Well my HAF-X should be sufficent.lol. whenever it finally comes out.
The only reason I started looking at the UD7 is because a regualr size mobo
looks so small in the HAf-X.
I don't plan on 4-way, so the ud-5 is probably what I should get with the 1050.
