Thanks guys
Good to hear. As much as bulldozer disappointed its still a great drop in upgrade for anyone on a dual core. That said I personally prefer a 1090t/1100t, but they have pretty much gone into extinction at this point.

I am running an x3 710 and have debated upgrading to a 955/965/1090t (I am on an AM2+ MOB, so FX CPU are a no go) and have pretty much decided to hang on to what I have until I do a CPU/MOB/Ram upgrade (except for the unlikely even that I get a ridiculously cheap price on a used CPU). I think if I was on a dual core athlon I would upgrade as you have done.

Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3770@4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, 4x4gb ram, EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, MX500 500gb
Away from home: Lenovo Legion Y530, 16gb, i7 8750H, GTX1050Ti
