This is why I've always gone with the best single graphic card I can buy. Too few games support it, let alone utilize it the way its suppose to.
I own a Phenom II X4 940 3.0 ghz that was released January 8, 2009 and I can still play almost any game on highest settings. So you should be set with the AMD cpu for 4-5 years assuming you aren't doing much more then gaming. Heck my 8 year old work laptop can still games @ medium settings.
Dude... get some watercooling and overclock that schiit!
My dad managed to get his X4 940 to 4ghz @_@
I wish that were the case. Many games are leaning towards high CPU, low GPU.
HOWEVER, I do a lot of photoshop. Though I'm sad I didn't get the performance boost I wanted (most games only use 4 cores), I'm happy that my purchase will be something useful for life use.
