Additional Comments: Here is what I spec'ed out on Newegg from my research here on TH. Please give any opinions or advice. Should I spend more / less in any particular area? Will I be bottlenecked by the CPU?
Can you wait until October 12th for the 6XXX series cards?
Overall, nice build but do not get the phenom ii x3.. get an x2 or an x4
Oooh. Didn't realize that the 6000 series were coming out that soon. I might hold off until then.
I was hoping I could be lucky and unlock the x3 into an x4, but in worst case.... I would end up with a 3 core that I could OC. The x2's are the same price, but if I couldn't unlock, I'd have a 2 core vs a 3. The x4 is double in price of the x3 and I'm not sure if the price jump is worth it.
