But best bet is to get the 945 if you cant get an 955. http://www.amazon.com/AMD-HDZ955FBGMBOX-Phenom-3-2GHz-R... here is one i found for only 2 dollars i think over the 945. The amd athlon isnt bad... but i wouldnt get an athlon tricore if your gonna get an athlon, go for an athlon 645 or a 640 or something. Heres a comparison betwene an athlon tricore 455 and a 645. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/202?vs=188 in most cases the 645 does beat it, but the 455 isnt far behind. Another comparison is the 645 between the 955. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/188?vs=88 you can see that once again, the 645 isnt that far behind, but the 955 does beat it in every single thing. I may have mised one but yeah. i also have a 6770 (same thing as a 5770 but i got it cheaper, like 75 quid or something) and it goes so well with the 955. I love it Share shazaib August 28, 2011 6:44:03 PM Best answer selected by shazaib. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
