My new parts has been ordered!

So after a looooong wait (Cash... It's always the lack of cash...), I have finally ordered my new PC parts! Yes, I do know that there are better parts out there, but these are still (IMHO) good parts. :) SPECS: CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3,2GHz RAM: Corsair Dominator DHX DDR3 1600MHz 4GB MOBO: Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H, Socket-AM3 Those are the new parts that I'm getting. I'm still keeping (For now...) my "old" HD4890 card and my 650W Corsair PSU. I'm expecting some major FPS gain, especially in Source Engine games, it's gonna be fun to test. :) That's pretty much it... :D PS. If you own any of these parts or have any experience with them, I'd be happy to know your opinion about it/them. :)

    same CPU and RAM I picked out for a friend (also from komplett.no).. but I also picked out HD5870 MATRIX 2GB for him and Crosshair IV mobo :P<3 you should have went with the sixcore cpu instead (costs almost the same) :P

    There's still a lot of applications that doesn't even support Quad Core CPU's, so I decided to wait a bit with the Six Core (Or more) CPUs. :) Thanks Roma <3

    Haha, he knows how to use it, but he doesn't have his own PC. :P Money has been tight at my cousin these last couple of years, so I thought I'd be nice and just build him a PC. :)

    Nope. :) They have realesed some HD6000 series cards now. (The HD6850 and the HD6870) The 6850 is a bit weaker then the 5850 and the 6870 is a bit weaker then the 5870, they are cheaper and they use less electricity. :) Review 1: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2010/10/22/ati-radeon-hd-6870-review/1 Review 2: http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-6850-6870-review/ Also, holy shit! Look at this Crossfire performance!!! http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ATI/Radeon_HD_6850_CrossFire/13.html
