Hello everyone, I'm currently researching for my computer build. This is my first build, I'm kinda nervous about it but whatever. I was planning on getting a i5-2500k but I went over my budget. So I was wondering if the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition is a good processor for gaming. Also, can I overclock it?. Here's some of my specs:

CPU: Deciding
GPU: Gtx 650TI 2GB GDDR5 SSC
RAM: 8GB 1600Mhz
HDD: 500GB 7200RPM

Thanks, I'm not the best when it comes for computer stuff. I really appreciate it. :)
 


yeah... you made a good choice... with a 650ti (not a high end GPU) getting a high end cpu at that price premium doesn't make a lot of sense either. The deneb core CPUs are all excellent overclockers, and excellent mid/low ranged gaming CPUs. Since that's an excellent mid/low ranged GPU it's a good and consistent match.
