Phenom X6 1055T gaming?

Is the Phenom X6 1055T a good proc for gaming? How well will it play games like BF3, Skyrim, etc...? What is the overclocking threshold?

The rest of the PC

8GB Corsair DDR3 1333


Either a Sapphire Radeon HD 4850X2 or an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1GB depending on which is better

  1. Hi :)

    The CPU will be fine for gaimg, the graphics cards you mentioned are crap....

    Gaming is almost ALL about how much you spend on the card....

    When we build a gaming Pc in my shops for a customer, the advice we give is to spend a MINIMUM of 50% of the cost of the whole machine on the card....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Just be aware that the vast majority of games only use two cores. A very small minority can use 4 cores. Not sure if BF3 in multiplayer mode can use 6 cores; in single player mode it only uses 2 cores.

    I would rather get a quad core Phenom II X4 with higher clock speeds like the 960, 970 or 975.
