I7 2600 or Phenom II X6 1090T

hello, I have Phenom II X6 1090T with Asus M4A785T-M, it was fine for a while but I keep getting BSOD when I use two RAMS. with only one RAM it works fine. So, I just conclude that my mobo is at fault. I was planning to get Asus M5A97 EVO for my proccy but then I heard that AMD proccy have memory controller problem or something like that so I change my mind to get i7 2600 (non K) and a new mobo with a new build which would cost me about Rs. 80000 approx. in india. What I wonder is will it be a great upgrade or just a slight increase in performance. I will be using Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro. If I should go with my current proccy then I would spend about 50000 for my new build. please help.

  1. thanks for the quick reply. I know its not a bad RAM because I tested the two of them in all the four different slots. I crash whenever both are use together. when only one is used it runs fine.
  2. Buy new ram before you do anything.
  3. I ruled out the CPU coz when I install my Athlon II X4 630, I have the same experience with windows explorer lagging behind. although I didn't get the BSOD, programs weren't snappy as they used to be before I face the problem. Is it possible that it is the PSU because mine is not branded
  4. I borrowed 2x 2GB RAM from a friend of mine and the computer works great. Does this mean my mobo can't cope with 4GB module RAM?
  5. Ok. I'm not buying Corsair anymore. lol

    Corsair is good, especially the 8gb vengeance kit for $50.
  7. As others have said, definitely memory.

    The i7-2600 is a nice CPU, but expensive for what you get. Upgrading or not depends on how much your willing to spend and how long your willing to wait. IB will be out which will reduce the prices on SB CPUs and might offer a better value. PD will be out later and might offer a good price / upgrade without you needing to change mobo's out.
  8. Have you tried flashing your bios to rule out any issues there?
  9. I don't know if its a good config but I'm planning on getting these for my Workstation build
    Proccy: i7 2600
    Mobo: Asus P8Z68 V Pro (since its a Z68 chipset and it comes with firewire port which I'll be needing)
    RAM: haven't decide it yet
    HDD: 2x 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue
    GPU: GTX 570(maybe zotac coz its the cheapest I can find)
    Monitor: Dell ST2220L(not sure about the model no. anything thats less than Rs. 10000)
    PSU: Corsair TX650 watt
    Cabinet: Cooler Master Elite 431 plus.

    will this be good enough to run Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and After Effects?
