If you will be mostly gaming just get a fast single core cpu...the duallies don't help much if at all in gaming (look up some reviews). Spend the extra money elsewhere like on a better video card. The x850xt pe is on sale with a $75 MIR till the end of today on newegg...total cost 386 after rebate.

drop  that x2 and get the 4000+ Sandy. Its cheaper and faster for what you want to use it for. Use the money saved from the processor to buy your self a better video card.

I was thinking about doing that save me more and get a better video card but just worried that know everyone is buying singal core cpus and then the dual cores will take off like pci-express I remeber when everyone use to think pic-e was stupid and know look at it everyone gets pci-e. Also I think amd is know only going to make new dual core cpus and not new singal core ones anymore.
