More about which choose
  1. and i have 19inch samsung monitor with 1280x1024 resolution
  2. Phenom II 965 is within your budget and the fastest processors compatible with that motherboard too.
  3. phenom II 965 in my country costs at least 180$ and its too expensive for me
  4. When you used the $ symbol I assumed it was US currency, my bad.

    Are there any Phenom II chips in your price range in your country? They are better than Athlon II if you can afford one, but that Athlon II X4 645 is still a good processor.
  5. i can get phenom II x4 850 and 955
  6. ok, i decided that i will save some money and buy a new motherboard and a better processor at the end of the summer, but now its phenom II x6 1100t vs fx-8120?
    the fx 8120 is a bit cheaper for me.so which of these processors is better for gaming?
  7. Phenom II X6 is better for gaming compared to the FX 8120 as it has better single threaded performance and can get more work done per clock cycle. Do keep in mind that no games use more than 4 cores, so getting a 6 or 8 core CPU will not benefit gaming performance in any way.
