    Memory: Mushkin Silverline 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
    Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB Video Card

    What do you think is better for the GPU the current one AMD FX-4100, or the AMD Phenom II X4 960T


    Forgot to add

    I want to be able to get as close to 60fps. I am intending on recording with dxtory or fraps when I play and I plan to render fairly often too! Thanks!
