  1. A...
    1.. well yes there is a difference, BUT , with the video card you are going to use I dont think you will get many fps difference.
    2...absolutely ., the phenom 965 is a beast of a proc and it will make any game fly
    3.... about the same
    4,,,,,,,,that depends, but both of them should give you 3 years
    5..........Phenom....because AMD own ATI , and the chipsets work well together
    6..............the i7 is the most powerfull ...but you get what you pay for generally are more dependant on the video card , so what you save on the i7 put it towards the vid card
  2. I'd go with the 955BE and overclock it.. There isnt THAT much difference between the 2 tbh..

    You'll save a fair bit of money opting for the 955BE which will go towards a better GPU which will prolong the life of the system..
  3. Thanks a lot pete , just a few questions :
    based on the my Current Location ( living Place ) , CPU that heats Less is better for me , anyway i heard that AMD Consumes lots of Power , is that that important ?because if PSU pay attantion to CPU ,then it will feed my VGA less . i realy worry about it , Intel seem to be Quite Girl which doesnt Cry for everything ! but AMD is better since it can provide me as Intel i5 & matches better with my VGA & costs less then i better go with AMD .

    Some things makes me get closer toAMD & something makes me Fall back !
    what i should do ?
    Wont AMD make Troubles for me ? does it have high enough Technology to Proide me at ANYTHING ?Can u mention how much Difference is ?( BETWEEN intel & AMD )
  4. Sorry to ask u these whole Questions , can u please read them all & answer them all that i dont ask them again & again ? thanks a lot my friend

    I havnt Owned AMD CPU before , thats why i Little afriad about things that i will lose by geting AMD & forget INTEL .
