The Black Edition will make for an easy overclock with unlocked multiplier I just wish they could make these quads in like a 65 watt TDP

hm.... or you could go ahead and get something like a 5850 and build a system around that.... unless you want to use nivida which means you should get a bout a 260 or maybe a 275

i have been a nvidia fan for a long time because of ati's problem with coming up with decent drivers. now i am looking to go back to ati because it seems they have got their act together. the reason i have for switching back is simply nvidia is known for repackaging old products under new names. i really would suggest that you find an ati card you like in you price range. like the one below.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R489OC-1GD Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Never had any problems with the Newegg.com - Galaxy 25SFF6HX1RUI GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards and Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops


The GPU is very good IMHO and ive maxed every game:
Crysis xconfig on lvl 4, Natural mod, extremely high settings 1600x900 and I get 33 fps average
Modern Warfare 2 is 92 FPS straight...No drops!

I don't know...

Fast dual cores > slow quad cores.

For example:

A > B

Yes, but a Phenom 955 has a great clock (which isn't everything) of 3.2GHz - 6MB of L3 cache - and overall, is a great choice.

Oh... I know.

Just commenting on the AMD Athlon II X4 620.

I love the AMD Phenom II X4 955.

i7 920 esque gaming performance for ~$160 bucks.

Agreed, I would never recommend the 620 for gaming - it has no L3 cache - but for media its OK. You also can look at the specifics of the architecture such as SSE and other extension support, the data bus, address width, and pipeline stages of the cpu if you dig deep into the specs. AMD has all the performance for less - something Intel still needs to learn.
