Can someone critique this combo on Newegg for me?

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

by reeding feedback of the motherboard a lot of people are having problems with it, so might want to look for another one and the CPU is great but found for a little more you can get the X6 1100T which isn't only 100MHz difference but apparently it makes a huge difference.

Starting to plan a computer for my son. It is for general purpose but should be game capable. I like this combo because for about $150 you could add a crossfire card.

I was concerned by the comments but are they reliable? What mb would be a better choice? I like the idea of a crossfire card for about $150. I want to work with a price ceiling of $1000.

If this is a budget gaming/general computer you would be much better off with the AMD Phenom II x4 955 be the reason is because games and most general applications don't take advantage of the extra cores. the only reason to go with x6 is if you are doing a lot of rendering work.

That motherboard would be fine there are a lot of reviews who know nothing posting scathing reviews on mobo when the issue is most likely something else.

I am building this computer for my son and he does do artwork at times on the computer. Actually some of it is pretty good. I figure a more advance processor would have more shelf life. What do you think?

by artwork do you mean huge Photoshop files or some paint work if it is huge Photoshop work than the x6 might be worth it, what program?

He uses photoshop to make images similar to figures in high preformance games. He uses a special tablet for this.

Okay then the x6 will probably offer more performance.
