If I am primarily focused one gaming and graphics wouldn't i be better served with less cores and higher clock speeds? Sorry don't know much about the architecture of cores. Most of the games and applications I use only use 2 cores max. Thoughts?
If all you do is game, then the 1055T isn't that important to you and you should get a Phenom II X4 925 or 955. You may also look at the i5 750 if you are going for some extreme graphics setup, it tends to do a little better than the Phenoms, but not much. It all comes down to how much you want to spend.
If you did mean graphic design then you should get the 1055T definitely.
