Im planning on upgrading my computer's RAM and processor. I want to try out AMD, since intel is quickly becoming overpriced.
I want to play games maxed out, and I don't have a real need for multithreaded applications. I mainly use Photoshop, but that's about it. I have a Radeon 5770, but my CPU is really bottlenecking my performance in games and everything else..
so heres my planned config at $350:
Mobo: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
I was also wondering how well this processor overlocks.
