    Yes for a single GPU rig! For gaming you will be better of with a faster X4 than a slow X6.
  2. hey its u again lolz
  3. Yep! Addicted!
  4. i can add another gpu if i like rite? in certain situations
  5. The 970 boards have two slots one running at X16 the other at X4 speeds it is a less recommended setup than the 990X which runs dual at X8 X8.
  6. Noone mentioning the PSU?

    For a Gaming Rig, better you use AMD Phenom II X4 970 or X4 980 instead of X6 1075.
