My system is almost done and I need a processor to complete it. My current system consist of
Ripjaws 2133 4x2 kit (Going to be running at 2000)
CNPS9900A Cpu Cooler
Cosair Tx 650w PSU
LG Blu-Ray Rewirter
2x 500gb 7200 Segate
Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro
I do mostly gaming but I will be doing some AVCHD video editing soon, Gaming vids, and some audio editing. I am also the kind that likes to minimize the game and go on to skype or youtube. What would be the best value for me?
I would go the 1100T route. The 980 BE is the steroid junkie of AMD's aging Phenom 2's a last attempt at injecting life into a dying architecture, sure its powerfull all things considered. But the 1100T has two extra cores that will help out. Worth the extra I think, that is if AMD is the only option.
