I have it down to those two options because I intend to put together a new build soon and those two are in the price range of what I want to spend on a CPU. AMD seems to be the better buy for a budget build.
I do intend to OC a bit, but I don't really intend to mess with the voltage that much until I learn more about it.
I think either the 955 or the 965 is a winning choice. I have been eyeballing both for a couple weeks now debating hard with myself on whether I need (Okay, WANT
) to upgrade my old system now or whether I can wait a few months to see what new CPUs come out. By waiting, I hope to be able to buy a 955 or 965 at an even bigger discount.
Best of luck to you. Enjoy your new computer.
