  1. go with x6 1055T and the mother board is good one
    you need a 500w power supply if you want to add a graphics card
  2. I agree the Phenom X6 is going to be better with 6 proper cores than the FX with its modules.
  3. Thanks for you reply and valuable comments , one more Q. DO this combination will support 16gb RAM 1600mhz. without any issues.
  4. yes it will support them without any issues
  5. corsair is good RAM brand go ahead and get it
  6. VM's run much better off of faster ram, meaning more channels.

    You will need two of those sticks for dual channel memory and performance.
  7. This board will support two dim of 8 gb rams
  8. This board will support two dim of 8 gb rams
  9. I would definitely go with the Phenom II 1055T. For what you want to do the Phenom II’s six real cores with a faster architecture will be better than the Bulldozer.
