Thanks.

Well,I think I'll go for the 955BE...I'm not sure if I'm gonna need a new PSU but if I didn't need 1 I would go for the PII 970.Thanks again.

Hey..Upgrading my PC soon and this is pretty much how it will be :
Phenom II X4 925(gonna try to OC it but I heard its hard)
4Gb DDR3 RAM
Ati Radeon 6850 1GB(gonna OC it too)

I need it for gaming @maxed settings..games like Skyrim/BF3/Crysis2.I already watched a couple of youtube videos(like these :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...Gckhx4&feature=related and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...URtM8&feature=related) running on ultra settings with the 6850...So what ya think ? do I really need the 955 or the 925 is enough ? I know the price difference isn't that big but just asking...

Welcome

The major difference between the two cpu's is really only the stock clock speed and TDP. also the 955 is a black edition witch mean it has unlock multiplier witch make it easyer to OC.

Now you can OC the 925 farly easy and you can probaly bump it up to 3.5Ghz and higher if you have a real good mobo but with the 955 its 3.9Ghz no problem.
I had my 955 OC'ed to 3.7Ghz 24/7 and a 100% stable.

If your looking for a gaming cpu I would go for the 955 BE or if you can aford it take a look at the PII 970. But I would't take to long to decide the phenom line is quickly disappearing.

-------------------------
PII 1100T (Extinct)
Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)
