I would like to know if I would be able to use a Phenom ii x4 965 BE or even a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE instead of the AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE, with my current setup. Thank you for your help!! :D :)

  1. Best answer
    Yes you can, but upgrading to the 965 is pointless it is litterally the same thing just with a factory bump. You can achieve the same clock with a minor overclock.

    As far as the x6, if its for gaming you wont see an improvement,only in threaded apps and multi tasking will you see an improvement
  2. Presumably you are gaming, otherwise why the 2x6870s lol.

    The 1090t is NOT a gaming processor. Games do not use more than 2 or 3 cores, so more slower cores don't help.

  4. Okay, good to know. I'll just stick to a quad core cpu. Thank you both for your help!
