I just got a amd 1075t from fry's(on sale) and i am planning to build a gaming pc.
1. I do not plan to overclock, do i still need to buy a aftermarket cooler?
2. Which AM3 motherboard should i buy? I wont SLI or Crossfire.
3. Which graphic card should i buy? My monitor is 1920x1080 and i want to max out all setting in games. My budget for gpu is 400$. Or should i wait for Radeon 6000 series?(I heard they are going to launch in Oct or Nov.(I can wait, i already been playing games WITHOUT a graphic card for a long time, so i really want a good graphic card)
4.Is 4GB Ram enough for gaming?
5.Which case has the best airflow?
6.Should i get a SSD(i know they are fast,but how fast are they exactly?)
7.I heard some people saying amd hexa-core cpu is not as long as i7 in gaming. Is it true? If is ture, how big the difference is?(i can return my 1075t within 15days.)

Thank you for your input. I greatly appreciate.

1. Nope
2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
3. Wait..
4. Yep, don't go over 4gb
5. Any HAF case by coolermaster, HAF 912/922/932/942
6. Without one your boot times will be a bit faster.. nothing will improve in game performance, they are super fast.
7. Don't return the 1075t.

you dont need to return that cpu, it should do fine, but in general, yes. the hex core cpu's have a slower clock rate, and therefore are not quite as powerful for gaming, and games seldom use more than 3 threads. keep the cpu, but you are correct.

the 1075t showes itself to be a little slower than the 1090t, but really, its NO slouch.

Thanks for the answer. I won't return the 1075t then.(it's a sweet deal, 180$ from fry's)

I was really tempted by that deal myself.

IMO, you shouldn't be spending much past ~120$ on a quality AMD mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is excellent if you want to CFX, while this is good if you don't plan on it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

IMO, I would grab a Hyper 212+ for some modest, non-voltmod overclocking. If you're willing to OC your northbridge you can really get a lot of extra game performance per clock: http://www.anandtech.com/show/3877/asrock-890fx-deluxe-...

with newegg combos, a $600-700 1075T system is pretty possible, using a 5750 or gtx 460
