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-
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.
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
