Hi, I have a few ideas myself, but I'm not a complete expert and although stats can be convincing, they can turn out to not be totally true due to compatibility between components.

So, which CPU (AMD only please) do you all think is the best to buy with a GTS 250 which I currently own? I'm on a reasonably tight budget, let's assume I'm building a PC between $500 - $1000. I currently have 4Gb of super speed RAM, 1Tb HDD and the GTS 250 which I will be transferring to the new PC. I'll figure out the MB myself.

Let me know what you all think.

Thanks in advance

Brain is not required when working second shift. That is the exception to that rule.

...the Intel i series runs from the $115 i3 530 to i7 975 extremes at $1k.....that is a lot of "equavalent " CPUs

P.S. using your brain to spell check is also useful

This Athlon II would be perfect but if thats too much you could always go for the x3 processor for $20-$30 less depending on model.


Hey hey people stop fighting =)

SAAIELLO good choice dude, as a matter of fact I came to the conclusion of that processor myself ^^
I went and did some research into it after viewing the T.H. hierarchy charts, and these are DEFINETELY the best performance for price processors. In my opinion anyway.

If anyone thinks differently, please do let me know, I wont be ordering anything until tomorrow.

the 1055T (x6 core) isn't out of your budget since you have all the other main hardware. Throw in a decent am2+ mobo and still be under $500 unless you go nuts on a case... LoL
1055t - $200
mobo - $100
Case - $150 (with decent PS)
Dvd - $30
-------------------------
total - $480

In this case you have yet to learn why comments are made, stick around and it might become clear to you.
