The O.P. has a 212 Plus and a decent AM3+ motherboard, so I recommend a 955 B.E. C3 or a 960T; then, either of those C.P.U.s could be as overclocked to perform better than any of the Intel dual core C.P.U.s.
I see no point for the O.P. to spend money towards another motherboard; wait for Haswell, or hope that A.M.D. can continue to compete.
this... theres so much people hating on amd here... their phenom line is still pretty damn good for todays gaming.
i have a phenom 965 slightly overclocked with an gtx 560 and it runs bf3 smoothly @ high graphicsThis post was edited by inconnu45 on Jul 10 2012 08:39am
