Best Build for AMD X6 1090T

Hi, I'm considering of building a new rig, but I'm not sure where I should begin to fully utilize my 1090T cpu. The build will be for gaming and a bit of video editing. My budget would be $1500 CDN.

Everything is an open suggestion, except for HDD. I'm not in need for a new HDD.


Approximate Purchase Date: This, or Next Year.


Budget Range: $1500 / no rebate


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Movies & Video Editing


Parts Not Required: Keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers, mousepad & headset


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.ca / Canadacomputers.com


Country of Origin: Canada


Parts Preferences: Asus, Antec, CoolerMaster


Overclocking: Yes


SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (Depending on the model/price)


Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050


Additional Comments: Window case at the side of the PC Case, I need a decent CPU Fan, a case that is Full Tower & able to put extra 120mm fans, unless it's already got a lot of case fans. In need of a new powersupply as well.

  2. I already have the 1090T, but in a different system. I plan on migrating that CPU to a newly built.

    Thanks for the link, I hope it makes it easier for everyone.
  3. Maybe something like this...


    I chose the 902 because you said you prefer Antec but I personally like this case more.
