    i have ram, case, PSU, DVD, hdd, VGA, LCD
    just need CPU & MB
    but i just want suggestion for CPU only
  5. You need to tell us what components you have now so we can suggest compatible components. If you have RAM now but not a CPU and motherboard, we need to know the ram especially for compatibility reasons.
  6. Ram Kingston 2GB*4 DDR3/1333/C9
    PSU Cougar 750 Watt
    VGA ATI 5770 Sapphire
    Case 1200 Antec
    HDD 80 veloci raptor + 2TB Seagate

    Also, what will your uses be? I can only assume gaming by the video card and case. And I assume by that power supply that you intend to add a second 5770 for crossfire at some point.

    Assuming that, the i5 760 is a good processor or, barring that, the i5 750. Here in Canada and the US, they are around $200. But barring that, the phenom II x4 955 is and excellent processor at around $150 here and should be more than enough for your setup.
  8. Many thanks for concern Mr. Enzo Matrix
    I use for virtualization , gaming, internet, office.
    Windows 7, Sever 2008, Mac ( Hacintosh ), Linux Ubuntu.
    in my country price of i5 760 ( 195 USD ) 2 USD more than i5 750 ( 193 USD )
    But AMD 955 is for 164 USD
  9. so i think i5 760 will be good?
    if it?
    have any inf about max overclock for this CPU on air, i have cooler master hyper 212+?

    From what I have heard, 4+ GHz for the i5 and 3.8 for the 955. So if you are overclocking I'd think the i5 better value.

    You might also want to consider the phenom II x6 1055t. significantly slower per core but if you are a lot into the virtualization, depending on your environment, you might benefit from the extra 2 cores. But this depends on how many virtual machines you run and stuff like that. Basically, is a quad core good enough for you? If so the i5 is better.

    Even in your warmer environment, this sounds not right. He should check his HSF application, thermal compound and case cooling.
    My friend has a 1055t stock with a cheap cooler with a couple heatpipes on it. in a 20*C room, it idles at "17*C". This of course means it's below the temperature where the sensor can accurately measure it. The HSF feels room temperature.
    For gaming, it certainly doesn't get anywhere neat 55*C to 65*C.
