AMD Phenom II x6 1090T?

I will mainly be using my computer for video and photo editing and maybe some 3d modeling. I may do a little bit of gaming with my computer, but I'll mainly be using it for those purposes. How would the AMD Phenom II x6 1090T processor suit my needs?

  1. The Phenom II x6 is a great decently priced CPU for video editing and heavy CPU threaded applications. I would say it's a perfectly fine CPU to go with. If you are to build a system around the Phenom II x6, then go with an AM3+ motherboard for upgradeability to the FX later down the line.
  2. Definitely an AM3+ motherboard and unless you need onboard video its best to use a board with a 970 or 990 series chipset

    The X6 is not the better than the X4 Phenoms for gaming , but its not worse either , and it is very good for editing and 3D modelling and encoding

    Get an AM3+ motherboard and use RAM that is rated at 1.5 volt or less for future upgrade compatibility

    Cool, I didn't know that AM3 processors were compatible with AM3+ boards.
  4. Yes, AM3+ motherboards are backwards compatible with AM3 socket CPUs, however, most AM3 motherboards WILL NOT support AM3+ CPUs
