I'm upgrading my cpu from an Athlon II x4 620, but arn't sure which one to get. My options are Phenom II x4 975BE or Phenom II x6 1090t.
I play games like C.O.D, Crysis and the like, also my wife uses the pc for her business.
My system at the moment is:-
Athlon IIx4 620 oc 3.1ghz
Add a second 5750 to run in CF and get a better CPU cooler to overclock your CPU. You would get somewhat better performance using a Phenom II X4 BE with a higher overclock. Even so I wouldn't buy a 975 BE, but a 955BE instead since it can reach about the same OC speeds and is cheaper. Of course, as always, when it comes to overclocking your mileage may vary.
I agree with Mosox. A better GPU will make a lot more difference in games. Check benchmarks. Also consider your wife's business uses; if she does any work that could benefit from CUDA, then you may find a nVidia card to be the better option. A GTX460 or GTX560Ti would be good.
Thanks guys. So if my budget allowed me to get a 955be and a 5750 would that be the best case senario? also does it matter which manufacturers 5750 i got, or would it have to be a HIS like the one i've got alread? cheers
