Throwbacks updated for the Phenom II

The Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition makes a compelling case for Socket AM3, particularly now that LGA775 has no real upgrade path. Which chipset should you choose for a high-end build? We've taken the 790FX and nForce 980a SLI for a spin to find out.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
