Hello, I'm looking forward to buy a new system for gaming..
I know the i3 2100/2120 is the best price/performance choice right now, but the LGA 1155 chipset price which is over 100$; I think I'll stick with a Phenom x4 955BE/1055T, where in the AM3 side i found ASRock Asrock N68-VS3 UCC at <50$

PS: I'll try unlocking to X6/X8 but no OC

Question is- does the chipset model/features affect so much performance to be worth the price?



Sys would be :
4gb DDR3 Dual channel
GTX 560Ti
7200.12 Barracuda
