This is my first time posting on the overclock forums
So ill introduce myself My name is Jeremy i am 25, i am a inexperienced overclocker but have had fun doing the little things i've done. I am not really looking to overclock much but to have a good system for a good price, but also I am much into learning more about it. Here is a list of what i have looked at so far.
Asus M4A79XTD EVO
ASUS M4A87TD EVO
Not sure about the lack of the Northbridge Multiplier If this has much to do with me sense i will not be overclocking. But I thought i read someplace if i want to unlock extra cores I need this, what are the benefits of this. I am mainly a gamer, programmer. I read that games don't need but the 2 cores so is this necessary ?
Which one would be the best for me in you all's opinion
AMD Phenom II X2 550 Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W
AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor
(doesnt come with heatsink/fan )
" any more suggestions for CPUS ? "
I know one has more L3 Cache and one 95w vs 80w But on other hand one has larger l2 capabilities. can someone in brief detail tell me which i want bigger for performance in gaming?
If I have no need to unlock my extra cores will this mobo do? If not can i have some suggestions for a mobo in the same price range ( 100$ usd ) Also I am interested in doing some overclocking so if you could point me in the direction also for one thats in the same price range.
Thanks guys in advance! I dont need a onboard video chip set i have a GTX460 so if i choose a mobo with one would this hurt me ?
I hope this is understandable.
