Hey all, so I'm looking to get a new system soon and I've picked out the parts and now I would just like some advice on anything that can be changed. I'm also trying to decide between a Phenom II 965 or an fx-4100 but I'm not sure which will give better performance. Here are the the current specs-

Hey thanks! I think I'm going to stick with a 6870 though because I don't really need a 7850, and I forgot to mention the $950 includes a monitor >_>

I would never include MIR in a budget. You still have to pay for the whole thing.

Many posters say with or without MIR however since one was not stated I just assumed. However to the OP, if you can afford to spend a little more before MIR you can get a better system in the end then if you were to just stick with a strict 950 budget. :)

MIR is still not part of budget if you include the overall price to be higher than the initial budget.

as the poster did not state one way or the other, I do not think it matters. I am sorry?

Haha thanks guys both look pretty dang good. Is the 7850 that much better than the 6870? because the 6870 has more cores in it

Thanks. I think I am going to stick with AMD though, so would it be better to get an older Phenom II x4 and drop it on an AM3+ board or get one of the higher end FX cpu's? I don't think I'm going to need more than a quad core because it's just going to be for gaming

It will not be as powerful at stock and more then likely will not OC as high.

its also more expensive then the 975

and is out of stock with the chance of them not ever stocking it again.
