Need to Upgrade

Current Specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.67ghz
Asus P5N-E SLI Mobo
4gb DDR2 RAM
ATI 5770 1gb

Trying to keep budget around $300 and the rig is mainly used for gaming and photoshop.

Phenom II X6 1090T w/ASUS M4A89GTD PRO at $415
Phenom II X6 1055T w/ASUS M4A89GTD PRO and 4gb DDR3 RAM at $448
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650



Currently leaning to the 1055T w/the mobo and ram. Above my price range but well worth it.

  1. Found an offer for a 6 month old bundle set at $250, all in good condition.

    - AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE Quad Core 3.4GHZ 125w processor
    - Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P Ultra Durable series motherboard
    - Xigmatech Thor's Hammer cooler with two 120mm ball bearing blue LED fans

    I'm liking the price and the hardware. Thoughts?
  2. I'm a casual gamer and do alot of photoshop work. I went ahead and ordered the following.

  3. Got a very good deal. Hexacore was $25 more than the quad. All in all got everything for approx. $400.
