My System Specs


HAHA! Stay with the Phenom! Seriously, in a lot of applications, performance will be similar, and those areas where you see an increase, the increase will not be worth the money you pay. Keep you 965, buy a good cooler for it, and overclock the Shiznit out of it.

If you really want to upgrade, the only worthwhile AMD chip for serious gaming these days is the FX8350 (and to a lesser extent, the 8320). Hold on to the 965 a little while longer, and save your pennies for one of the octo-cores.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
