Bah$5000 AU (3441.46) USNice PC though, awesome specs and prolly performs wicked fast eh?Thats one reason i prefer Intel, but they do have the power and resell value 🙁March 20, 2009 at 4:58 pm #31507March 20, 2009 at 5:00 pm #31508
bah… againnah, i like amd, general runs cooler and gives you better overclockability (is that a word)but once again, to each his own...March 20, 2009 at 5:20 pm #31509
yep, you can overclock AMD nearly up to the native speed of the Intel lol.. but then you'll need to cool it a bit better 😉mine is overclocked at 3.8GHz and idles at 21 celcius, gotta love watercooling. Might even try a Vapochill setup one day, see how it goes at below freezing....AMD make great value mid level stuff, but if you want a serious machine you need to spend the bux on an Intel...

ah, thats not true at all 🙁example...amd phenom quad core 2.3 Ghz Black editionclocked to 3.2 Ghz on Standard CoolerOR another one:newegg best ratings, best amd and best intel rated:AMD Phenom 9850 BLACK EDITION 2.5GHzhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103249 Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHzhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115017so of the best rated two, the amd is the better choice, and guess what?AMD = $139.99Intel = $199.99Compare them here:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010340343&bop=And&CompareItemList=N82E16819115017%2CN82E16819103249here is a screenshot of the above:1066 v 4000March 20, 2009 at 8:45 pm #31511
yes, but like i said, thats the midrange stuff.. tell me about an AMD running at 3.8GHz….. and I can push harder to get over 4GHz out of my QX9650 ..

You two are pretty funny… I didn't know this was the funny section though.March 20, 2009 at 9:38 pm #31513
whats its native speed?March 20, 2009 at 9:43 pm #31514
fastest intel i saw = 3.2 Ghz (NOT A BLACK EDITION)Fastest Amd i saw = 3.0 Ghz (BLACK EDITION)for those of you whom do not know, a black edition has an unlocked multiplyer, a part of a cpu, which you can change to overclock the processor to outstanding speedslike, oh i dont know 8.0 on custom liquid coolingMarch 21, 2009 at 4:48 am #31515
Of course clock speed is not all there is to it, and AMD have always run lower clock speeds for a similar result.

ok, ok i will give you that one i guess, the amd = gaming intel = apps;Dok, so posting from memory was a bad idea 🙁 go figure, phenom II 6.5 Ghz Stable Nitrogen / heliumhttp://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/overclocked_amd_phenom_ii_hits_65ghz_with_liquid_nitrogenhelium_cooling4.4 Airhttp://www.engadget.com/2008/11/21/amd-overclocks-the-snot-out-of-phenom-ii-processors/August 17, 2009 at 9:33 pm #31517AlexBarnes313Participant
Now I want to see a pic of Dak's pc. Sounds awesome.August 18, 2009 at 4:47 pm #31518
My PC is now my display pic.In about 3 weeks I am going to an Core i7 950 with 128GB solid state Windows drive and 1TB sata Data drive. I'm using 6GB DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Dominator, and keeping my twin GTX285 Sli setup. Now THAT should be awesome....Also about to start experimenting with a shoebox computer.. a 1.6G Atom.. just out of curiosity.

That's pretty awesome. I can't wait till I'm done with school and college and have my own apartment. I know what to do. 1. Get a newborn cat2. Get a newborn Golden Retriever3. Get a newborn ferret4. Get a computer like Dak's
