if budget allows upgrade to a 965BE i loved that cpu to death for 2-3 years before i had a job and went intel

Lol ok thanks for that is the upgrade a real big difference in performance? (i like the black edition i dont like the bulldozer series doesnt seem better.)
July 24, 2012 7:26:42 PM

its a 200 mhz difference, i know a friend that got his 955 up to 4ghz i think.

Hmmm your right i think i might actually do that and just give my GF my old CPU for when i build her a computer. But if it helps at all mostly im going to be playing guild wars 2. Would that help? O and i know this is off topic but i wasnt getting very good framerates during the beta last weekend. I know its beta so it might change when the game releases but do you have any suggestions or opinions? And i forgot to add that its cooled by a Corsair H60.

It should, I havent seen the Required Spec's for GW2 (i was a GW1 prohecies player before factions came out) as for framerate, yes you will notice a change, due to more people on screen

Ok thanks. I might upgrade in the next couple of weeks or so. I need money lol.
