So I have these 2 choices, in a gaming rig I'm getting, It's prebuilt, so please don't suggest anything else, and no, it's not cheaper to hand build.
So what should I get, the
Phenom II 955
, running at
which has a .2Ghz higher clock speed and a
GTX 550 ti 1GB
Athlon II 640
which is running at
, with no L3 cache, but a much better GPU, the
HD 6850 1GB

955 vs 645 (they didn't have the 640) in benchmarks
I have a 955 in one PC and an athlon II x3 in another. It's not a huge jump in every day commuting unless you plan to do heavy video encoding.
