  1. Just the CPU and motherboard. What GPU you have? That X6 is still a decent CPU though if your GPU isn't good you may want to upgrade that instead.
  2. Where is your system letting you down?

    It might not yet be time to put your AMD parts out to pasture.
    Especially if it's not the CPU/MB that's holding your system's performance in check.
  3. I am assuming that is a Phenom II x 6, in which case i don't get the "drabby ol CPU" part as it is still very much a strong player.
  4. I was guessing Phenom II X6 1045T.
    OC'd to 3.2Ghz, especially with a good GPU, it's still a player.
