Most AM3 cpus are handily outframed by 20-50% margins by the 2500k/combo; in fact, the X6 will be outframed normally by an X4 at the same clockspeed due to OS overhead. m 0 l Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system April 24, 2011 9:17:34 AM First of all replace the AMD mobo and X6 with a P67 and 2500k, it's faster and newer. Second of all 1000w PSU??? YOU ONLY NEED 650W for that thing! Thirdly, DDR3 1333 CL9 is mediocre, get a better 8GB kit with at least DDR3 1600 CL9 or 8 OR just get 4GB DDR3 1600 CL6 Ripjaws X, half the amount of memory yet twice as fast! m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
