My System Specs


Stick with the 965 if you intend on doing any gaming at all. It'll overclock reasonably well (3.8 is pretty standard for the most recent batches), and I wouldn't recommend anything less than the highest end 8 "core" (they don't really have 8 cores worth of processing, more like 5 1/2) AMD chips for a budget gamer. They just don't play nice in the sandbox when it comes to games.
