I am going to buy a new system with a following configuration for adobe after effects, 3D rendering, moderate gaming, flash, video editing etc :--

AMD Phenom(TM) II X6 1055T (2.8GHz, 9M, 6C)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit Edition
23" Full-HD Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor
6GB DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz Memory
750GB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
1GB ATI® Radeon™ HD 5870

My only concern with the above configuration is that I am getting a very high end video card but I can't say the same about the processor.

So what do you guys think, is it good enough ???

1. AM3 runs in dual channel so 2 x 2 DDR3?
2. Moderate gaming even on Full HD sounds a tad heavy with a HD 5870 - perhaps a HD 5850 would suffice
3. What about case/PSU/mobo?
4. 1055T despite being a locked multi chip has a rather sweet OC headroom ^^ Tried and tested over several International hardware forums

Are you buying or building??

Either way, you would be better off with the x4 955 over the x6 1055T but your better option for your activities would be the i5 750 in the same price range. If you have the funds, an i7 930 is the best route (unless the i7 980X is in your budget :)  ) for your activities.

5850 is not there I can get 5770, but thats a low end card I guess also I dont want to overclock and I dont quite understand locked multi chip.

intel core i7 930 is very very tempting, but I dont have a budget for that at the moment..
