That comes in way under my 450 budget... is this combo gonna get me a bit more performance than my current amd setup??
If you are building a 2nd computer that combo is not too shabby.
The i5 760 will game much better then the 1055T but that's where it ends your 1055T is better for threaded apps like Photoshop and video encoding and production.
Really though you could have the best of both worlds just give the wife the set-up you don't prefer she probably won't notice the difference.
Performance wise i think they are about par when all things are considered.
I'll give the i5 760 the edge for gaming.Since a 955BE outperforms the 1055T gaming wise.
