I'm going g to build a rig in a few days.....I have selected all of my PC components but I'm pretty confused about the Processor & motherboard...I've selected-
500GB HDD cegate
LG DVD writer
2 GB OCZ DDR3 RAM
16inch AOC monitor
XFX ATI 5770 GDDR5 1GB GPU
I have earlier decided to buy AMD PHENOM II X4 945(140.00 USD in India)....but as I'm low on budget so Im kind of thinking about downgrading the processor...I dont know wheather the PHENOM X3 series will be good for moderate gaming or not..
please suggest any AMD or INTEL processor for my system (I'll mostly play games in the PC like Conviction,Metro 2033,Badcompany 2 etc ect)
Thank u

then ai3 will do the job......
The tri-core 700 series Phenom IIs are just quad-core chips with one faulty core, which is disabled.
