I'm building a new PC (after 7 years dealing with an Athlon XP) and I'm stuck on the new processor. Here is what I am deciding between:
Phenom II X4 955 BE
Phenom II X4 960T BE
Overclocking is a priority, and I am going to keep this for a bit, so reliability is an issue too. The Bulldozer is new and has a higher clock speed, but I don't know about multitasking (4 half cores) and the benchmarks that have come out. The Zosma system is tempting because of the possibility of becoming an X6, but o/c headroom is an issue. Then finally, the Deneb processor has the best of both worlds and is the current favorite at this point, but who knows about the others.
