Hello guys, I want to make a desktop computer possibly before July. (or the sooner the best)
I've heard rumors that amd 960T will be released eventually, Is the 960T worth the wait? is it superior than 1055T with 2 cores unlocked ?

Country of origin: Australia

*No crossfire
*College assignments
*Reasonably quiet

I can't decide on what mobo to get basically the main thing i want this is to be future proof.

I have no experience with overclock, is it simply editing the bios ?/
Would I need extra Heat Sink If i do OC ?

CPU: amd 1055T: $224
RAM: G.Skill-NT 4GB DDR3-1333 $129
Case: Antec 300 $68
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB/Seagate Barracuda 500GB $99/$52
PSU: Corsair VX-450 $88
ODD: Lite-ON DVD burner $29
GPU: ati 5770/5850 $167/$315

This is what i gathered in my build so far, I will buy this once everything has been corrected etc, THANKS !

Is much easier to OC a black edition phenom II. You can get the X4 955 or 965 those are good for your purposes. For the mobo you can get a Gigabyte or Asus with usb3.

Not really - 1055T despite being a locked multi chip may seem harder to clock but across the board seems to settle about the same max clocks w.r.t 1090T and i dun really think the price difference is worth going 1090T if a user intends to clock from the word go hehe For non CF/Thuban out of the box the usual suspects:

Gigabyte 870A-UD3
MSI 870A-G54
Asus M4A87TD/USB3
Asrock 870 Extreme3
Biostar TA870+

of course not ruling out peeps who actually want mATX/small footprint

880G chipset, mATX (various models but avoid those on SB710)
