Is an AMD phenom x4 925 good for gaming? Tags: CPUs Gaming Phenom Last response: May 29, 2011 11:23 AM in CPUs Share kazaamk May 29, 2011 10:02:17 AM Im new to building computers and Im wondering if this cpu is good for a gaming computer. I found this combo on newegg it includes this cpu and a 1TB hard drive for 145 bucks which seems really good. Whats the difference between a 955 x4 and a 925 The 955 has 3.4ghz but the 925 only has 2.8ghz, does that mean the 3.4 is faster and better cuz it has higher ghz?

Also note: Don't be fooled. It is a little disingenuous to call the HDD listed in your combo as *SATA 6Gb/s* It looks to be a decent mid-level HDD but its performance will not match that of the Spinpoint F3 SATA 3Gb/s drives. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
