Answer:
thanks it's mainly for games. i had a msi diamond (nvid) with msi 280 gtx oc, i got the 295 just before the motherboard decided to die. and supplier only had the amd chipset. and to be honest it benches higher with either card.
so i thought i would try crossfire maybe? but stuck with am2+ socket and ddr2 ram.
system does what i want at the mo, but i like to have latest amd cpu!
i guess i'll wait until i can afford to build new system as nothing seems to bottle neck on here at the mo.
i'll start saving. thanks for the reply.
and ***** nice rig btw

Single 295 GTX , your 940 BE is powering that GPU just fine.

If you where to add another 295 GTX or move to multi GPU of another type then the 1090T would be advisable for sure.

I guess it comes down to what you use your PC for.

I can tell ya the 1090T does wonders for video coding.

that said, 1090T makes for a hella nice future proof CPU.
