Hello dwarf10;

Is this a gaming build? What resolution monitor will be used?

Looks like too much CPU and not enough video card.

@WR2: Yes, it is going to be a gaming PC.... Monitor: 19 in. 1440x900..
why? is the GPU bad? it isn't gonna bottleneck the CPU, is it?

@ohiou: around $ 800... since I'm not a big gamer!! =)

is there big difference between 1055T and 1075T?? which one should I go with?? I know that 1075T has higher multiplier, and overclocks a bit better.....

We don't see many high end CPUs matching with lower mid-range graphics cards.
Most games are GPU limited before they are CPU limited.
In other words, for most games more GPU than CPU makes a lot of sense.

To be honest the faster quad cores x4 955 3.2Ghz or x4 965 3.4Ghz make better sense.
Especially if you can move up to the next higher GPU.

That's true, I was actually thinking about x4 965 BE, but no future proof though... 4 cores are awesome for gaming right now, but maybe after a year or 2 most of the games might require more than 4 cores...

The thing about games is that no game developer or publisher will ever design a game that will only run well on 6 cores. They'd loose the other 90% of the customers who are going to be on 2, 3 or 4 cores for years and years to come.

Sorry, I made a mistake by saying might require more than 4 cores, What i was trying to say is that future games would run much faster and smoother on x6 processors..

Just think how much faster they would run on 8 cores.

Do you think it's better to pick x4 965BE over 1075T or 1055T for better gaming and performance????

I really have no problem with either of the X6 CPUs.
But I do think you'll get better gaming performance with a better video card.
If that means going with a x4 955/965 so you can get a better GPU you'll come out ahead in gaming performance.

Notice the BF:BC2 recommended graphics cards for DX10: GTX 260/HD 4870? Both those cards are slightly more powerful than the HD 5770 you plan to get.

I'll be honest, last guy I helped with a build wanted Sandy Bridge, but had a smaller budget. Long story short, talked him into a X6 1090t and upgraded the video card to a GTX 570. He LOVES it. My point is, I think you would be wise to step down to another processor and go to a better card. Also, do you have a microcenter nearby? If so, check them out, a lot of times they run deals where you buy an AMD chip, get a free board, or get like 40 off any board when you buy an AMD chip. So that means you may be able to get a processor you want and still grab a 460 or similar card.

MB => Consider a motherboard with an 800 series chipset. The ASRock 870 Extreme3 (USB 3.0, SATA 6) is a great board at a good price point.

CPU => The best bang for the buck is the Phenom X4 955 BE. Bump the multiplier in the BIOS to the 965 / 970 speeds at a minimum. CM Hyper 212+ CPU cooler to keep things in check...
