need a new cpu

Recommended Posts

i think my cpu is really limiting the potential of my 7970, so should i get a thuban? i would like to get 8350 but asus haven't release a bios update for piledriver, even bulldozer bios is still beta... the guys at oc.net say it will work but with some minor issue so what do you guys suggest? get a thuban and call it a day or get 8350 and tackle out the issue ( not minor though, after reading a few post there is quite some issue that need attention such as system won't post with ddr speed above 1600,cnq not working etc)

 

 

*edit

here is my rig

 

Phenom II X2 550 ( unlocked to 3 core at 3.8 )

Crosshair iv Formula

8GB Corsair Vengeance
Gigabyte HD7970

WD Caviar Black 1TB
Enermax NAXN 82+ 750W

CoolerMaster HAF922

Thubans are great CPU's. The problem is finding them. What minor issues do you know of? If they really are not significant issues i would go with the 8350.

If it's a good deal, I love the Phenom X6's. Just make sure they aren't overcharging you because they're hard to find!
