1100/1090t black or fx 6300 + new board

right now i have athlon 2 x3 with msi 880gma-e45. its time to upgrade so should i get a 1100t/1090t be(225), 965 be(95) and keep my board until steamroller? or should i get a 990fx board now(msi gd80v2, 150) and get an fx6300/8350(210/140)? or get the board with the 965be... looking to spend no more than $320ish on both(some wiggle room here)... please no mention of intel. i plan on getting a steamroller chip when they come out, what do u guys think?

  1. Hard to find the 1100 or 1090 these days. The 6300 is a good chip and not too pricey.
  2. If you can find one, go Phenom II 1100 or even 1090. but I think even a FX 4300 would do you best if you plan on upgrading to steamroller. but one of those, save your money, and save up ;)
  3. The 965 can still be had.
  4. Out of all of those, the 965 for the price is a steal, If you can get a 1100T or 1090T then get that, but I wouldn't spend more then 200$ You can get the 8 core pile driver 8320/50 for less then 200$ and perform close to the 1100T. 8320 for 159$ is a steal and can OC to the same limit as the 8350. I would stay away from the FX4300, its just a dual core with well how do I want to say it "Fake cores". Same with the 6300 3 real cores with 3 fake cores, Fake is a bit hard, but Im not going to ever recomend a CPU where people arent even sure if its a true 6 core as stated on the box lol. 8 core does have real 8 cores, but are a bit on the slow side, allowing even the 965 to out perform it in most games.
  5. since its discontinuation, the 1100t is selling for $220+ USED and the asking price for new ones are $400+

    not worth it when the fx 6300 comes close in performance and is only $140

  6. The 6300 is actually selling at $130 right now... That's great! I'd buy it! And Viking is talking about 3 Modules, there are 2 cores per module
  7. The 965 BE is a steal here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 and then use the rest for an awesome Motherboard.

    Thats a pretty good. But you should try and upgrade the gpu to a 6870. Here's a benchmark http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/296?vs=290
    And then crossfire it.
  10. He's throwing the 5770 in with the ssd(160ssd, 40 5770) im just gonna use that till a scrape up some money for a 7870, or gtx 660

    Ah. Even better. Personally I would go with the GTX 660. But that's me.
  12. In due time I just might... decided to cut down on less important things and buck up to the fx 8350, lol feel like I earned it
