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.

I do have another question. Why it needs to be an AMD cpu?

I agree with DJ..
As far as a good mobo for overclocking, this is a good'n.

$114 with rebate

Little cheaper, its okay too

RAM, I'd suggest a decent 8GB kit like this:

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.

Quote:
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.

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.
