    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.80 GHz

    1055t oc only to 3.4 oh well. that's what i get fer being fancy. it could be the gigabyte mb rearranges my memory timings and that's what's causing problems. won't even boot higher. and at that speed i get system freezes during gaming.

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.80 GHz

    The 2nd 4890 was purchased for 125 inclusive of shipping and fees, I'm thrilled. For $125 I get to upgrade my old 4890 I paid $150 for into something that outperforms a $400 5870, 295, and beats 5830s ($440 on sale) in crossfire. The six core 1055T is in house/chosen for it's abililty to morph...

    What about the benefit of the extra 2 cores with a game like GTA IV that uses 4 cores? In the real world I'll have raid which is processed I believe by the cpu, anti virus in the background, and a million other processses that you probably shut down during a benchmark. I'd be interested to see...

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.80 GHz

    I see. I have a difficult time finding benchmarks on line that show my card, usually older cards or better cards. I guess my conclusion that the difference was > i5 750 vs. 1055t was mostly inference. Two reasons for the $80 550 ... a. it can possibly turn into a B50 x4 and b. for the $100 +...

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.80 GHz

    Crossfire? I ditched my old q9550 set up so I could crossfire my 4890, which is a better result dollar for dollar than the new cards, fps wise. The main consideration for my new setup came down the availability of full 2x 2 PCIe x 16 lanes in the motherboard. The 930 x58 set up was too...
