Hey everyone! It's that time of year again and I'm looking for opinions on my upgrade. My current specs are to the left and I'm upgrading for the sake of.. upgrading oh, and gaming. My budget is around $450 before taxes but I can stretch it a little. With that said, I'm hell-bent on getting the Crosshair V so my options right now are either the Phenom II X6 1090T or the FX-8120 paired up with some Mushkin Blacklines.

My question is, should I get the FX-8120 or the 1090T? I read quite a few people saying that they'd much rather get the 1090T over the FX-8120. I know that Bulldozer uses more power and performs worse clock-for-clock compared to Thuban, but I'm honestly just looking for the best framerates. The FX-8120 clocks much higher than Thuban, this would result in better framerates right? Or, would they still perform relatively the same when they're overclocked to their limit on air? Thanks for reading! And Merry Christmas!
