  4. Hi :)

    1100T BE ...

    All the best Brett :)
  5. 1100's are hard to find and the 965 is approaching EOL. I'd get an 8120 if you can't find a 965 BE. A 965 will last at least another year though.

    You always push the 1100T, and I know it's good, but you know as well as I do that the extra 2 cores mean nothing for gaming.

    Besides, the 965BE is MUCH easier to find.

    All the best Brett :)
  8. I do have another question. Why it needs to be an AMD cpu?

    Instead of the Gskill ram, i suggest the low profile Samsung 30-nm DDR3 memory. These memory modules can be pushed for very low stable latencies, which benefit AM3 Phenom II processors.

    Every single one of those benchmarks are more than playable. Its irrelevant if Intel hits 100+ and AMD hits 70. 70 is more than enough.


    The fact that Intel is better for gaming or the assumption that an AMD CPU was trash for gaming was never the point to him posting those. It was the fact that Brett said that an 1100T was better than an i5.
  13. guys, cmon... lets just let this amd fight go k? who outperforms who, it does not matter, lets just stick to giving good suggestions on what this thread needs...

  15. I'm deleting most of this. None of it addresses the OPs question. You are just bickering amongst yourselves, a very old argument.

    I would like you all to take a moment and reflect on the wasted time spent on all this, now gone.
