  1. 965be would be the better choice for gaming. Most games only use 2 cores.

    The 965 BE can also be overclocked easier than the 1055T, but even at stock to stock, the 965 wins.

  2. Yep the higher clock speed of the 965BE makes it better for gaming.
  3. but 1055t has 6 cores will it make difference in games in future

    Unlikely in the near future but it would suffer from the slower clock speed.
  5. Hi :)

    IF you can find one get an 1100T ...i run them in my gaming machines...

    All the best Brett :)

    Meh, game coders have to get their games to use 4 cores effectively before they can think about 6. 1100T would be nice, but they're real hard to find now from a reputable merchant.
  7. thnx for all replys

    Not really. By the time we get to the point where CPU's effectivly uses 6 cores the Phenom II will be ancient.

    I would say to get the 965 because more cores doesn't mean better performance. In this case less cores and a higher clock rate will give better performance for gaming.

    It all depends on the specific game. Some games will be able to take advantage of more cores, BF3 for example on heavy multiplayer can bog down a quad

    Other games as pointed out just want a faster cpu.
