I'm planning on buying some new parts for my PC, but im kinda new to all this stuff and im not 100% if im making the right decisions in regards to the parts i've looked at buying.
Here's a list of the parts:
AMD AM3 x6 1090T 3.20Ghz Phenom II
Kingston HyperX-TI-XMP 4GB kit(2Gx2) ddr3
ASRock 880GM-LE 880G DDR3 Motherboard
Antec 300 Three-Hundard Gaming Tower without PSU
LG SATA Black DVD Rw
And these are parts i laready have:
Radeon HD Sapphire 4890
Vantec Ion2 650W PSU
I use my computer mostly for gaming, i play games like Battle field Bad company 2 and Rift. I also to a bit of video editing here and there. So i was just wondering whether these parts will last me a while, and run future games and programs sufficiently, and also should i stick with AMD or go for the intel models, like the sandy bridge.
If you want it to last a long time Sandy Bridge is a good more powerful option across the board. Going with an AMD build is a good budget solution and that is a good 6 core build which is going to help you more with Video editing than gaming Phenom 965BE has better performance in gaming.
