Could someone give me some advice on whether or not this cpu upgrade is worth it? I'm going from a AMD Phenom 9550 to an AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE. I have a GTX 260 core 216 so I'm mostly wondering how much of an FPS increase would I see? It's rather a big upgrade since I'll be changing mobo, cpu, and case. Part of the reason why I want to upgrade is because I would like to get better performance on the PCSX2 emulator. Personal opinion is very welcome. Should I just stick it out and wait a year or two for better cpus to come out?
It is absolutely worth it.. The Phenom II series is a great improvement over the initial Phenom line of processors.. Moreover the platform is touted to be compatible with AMD's upcoming CPU's which should keep you hooked up for few years to come..
If I went with an I5 750 build, It would cost more than this current AMD build right? The processor itself costs about $20 more and I'll also be loosing a 20$ combo deal. The intel motherboards don't seem to support ddr2 so I'll have to get more ram too.
