In the exact same boat, Get all excited and think of some ideas, but never think to check if those ideas are even related lol, or when I do check, I often overlook the obvious

Thanks for the added info guys. Yeah, I'm thinking I'm just going to stick with the 1055T. In all of the reviews I've seen there isn't a significant enough difference between the two and the 1055T is usually underclocked in the comparisons.

Sounds good! Make sure you let me know how that works out, I am contemplating the next model up for a re-vamp of my computer (the 1090T)

Yeah, once I get it built I'll let ya know how it went. Still waiting on a check to round out the remainder of the money I need so I have to wait about a week and a half. I'm getting REALLY anxious. I hate waiting haha.

I got close and actually took out a small load to cover the last few hundred because I could not wait the last 7 days... Lol.

No worries there haha. Pretty much all I've been doing is researching every piece I'll be purchasing. Again thanks for all the help from everyone. I'm sure I'll have at least a few more questions before I purchase the parts. lol Yeah, Fox I'm resisting the urge to do the same thing.

Well, you can OC the i5 easily to 4GHz so... and most games don't take advantage of multicore so unless you're folding or using apps that take advantage of the two extra cores you won't notice a big advantage.

Take a look at this review:
AMD's Six-Core Phenom II X6 1090T & 1055T Reviewed - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

The i5 performs better on games or apps that don't take advantage of multicores. The 1055T performs better on apps that take advantage of multiple cores.

Now is up to you which cpu is better for your needs.

Alright, now I'm trying to decide on a motherboard (That fits my budget). I have it narrowed down to either...
Newegg.com - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO&#47;USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb&#47;s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
and
Newegg.com - MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb&#47;s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

The MSI mobo is a bit more expensive than I was wanting to go, but if its a big enough upgrade then it's worth it. Anyone have any thought?
