Post Re: AMD?
I still have my Phenom X4 running my linux machine just fine.

And I just upgraded my HTPC to an A10-6800K so I can play some games on it. Runs all the NFS games well enough at 720p with low AA. I have no complaints really. It made sense for something to run in a low profile system. check out my thread in the htpc forum here

Still running my X4 at 4 Ghz playing FF XIV at pretty much max, thanks to the overclock. I might go for a FX-8350 next year.
The 8350 is as good as any Intel for gaming (not productivity). I can not imagine going Intel since I don't do photoshop or anything like it.
If you only build for gaming save money by buying a AMD processor and get better coolers or graphic cards with the money you save.

Post Re: AMD?
This past summer I build a rig for my sister based on the A10 apu. Don't remember the exact model, but with 4GB of ram, it runs basic Microsoft office and web browsing without a problem. Pretty fast computer (besides HDD) for sub $300 ain't bad at all. Also the first computer I ever build somehow showed up at my house and I'm debating what to do with it. Its got an Opteron 146 on socket 939 and 1GB of ram. Only issue I have is that the fan on the evga 7800gt is extremely loud. If i build a NAS machine or something like that, I'll need so swap over the graphics for something quieter, perhaps a fanless design.

I could overclock my HTPC if it will make you happy, but then it won't run silent the way I built it....

The highest-end AMD model is 8-cores running at 5GHz already. It has very little OC headroom from all the reviews I've read.

Uhm, you need to decide which kind of action you want dude. Overclocked AMD proc's or naked chicks?

Post Re: AMD?
Back on topic, I have this XFX Bravo case that I got for free and I was thinking of tossing together an AMD rig in it, just so that I can say I've used AMD's latest gear. But it would be such a waste as I have no purpose for the machine after building it...

However if I do it with the 8-core CPU and a FireGL GPU, my brother could use it as a render box for his AutoCAD stuff...

Built it using one of those new FX series. Heard they got a lower TDP. As for the no use for it, ship it down south, I can find a use. :mrgreen:

Speaking of extreme overclockers, I wonder what became of Avid.

probably house and kids.

that's one thing i told my wife that i can never give up. computers, audio/video equipment, and cars. outside of those three, she can take anything away from me.

The FX-9590 (4.7GHz 8-core) is going for a mere $250 this week...

i just spent 1300 on the chassis for my new server build. otherwise I'd consider grabbing that AMD chip for that price

I will get you pictures. But they're on my camera, and I lent it out to a friend for the weekend who's going to comicon. I figured pics of cosplay girls on my camera was an acceptable bargain for lending it.
