I now have a job (which is very exciting at almost 16), so I now have more money to spend on computer upgrades. I'll have a total of around $800 by mid-July. Here's what I'm considering: Phenom II X6 1055T ($200) Phenom II X6 1090T ($300) Phenom II X6 1055T/1090T + 4GB DDR3 + 790/890FX/GX (~$450 or ~$550 i7 860 + 4GB DDR3 + Gigabyte P55 ($525) Now, the X6 1055T or 1090T would obviously be the cheapest upgrades because I could re-use existing components, but I doubt that it would be as fast as an i7. In particular, I doubt that I could OC the 1055T much on my cheap 785G motherboard, so I doubt I could get past 3.6ghz (and due to the 4-phase power circuitry, I wouldn't want to go any further). Considering the price/PPD, which do you guys think I should go with?
