AMD is not horribly behind Intel performance wise, at lest were not using overheating P's Ha Ha Ha.

Anyways, i keep my faith in AMD strong, they will come back, even some of the X3/X4's are performing close to some intels.
That's because a lot of the current Intel users switched from AMD.

Uhhh, what? I do remember myself getting a 1.2GHz right out of the box with my AMD Opteron 165. I also remember hitting near a 1.5GHz overclock on a suicide run (see my sig for details on that one). Don't sit there and tell me AMD's don't hit a 1.0GHz overclock easy, because I'm currently sitting on a 1.0GHz overclock UNDERVOLTED by 0.1v. Clock for clock at 3.0GHz, I'm sure I'll give any C2D (not Quad) a run for its money. And my machine is socket 939!!! How many years old is that? I see nothing wrong with running a good AMD system, even these days. However Intel DOES currently have the market. If I were to buy a new system right now, it would be Intel. But only because that's what's the best for the money. When I bought this system it was best for the money. And guess what? It's still going to last me (hopefully) at least another year! LONG LIVE AMD!!!

Its funny how people are seeing the "comeback" of AMD as the next coming of Jesus Christ.

If AMD really want to get back on track, especially in the enthusiasts market, they really need to pull their finger out and scrap their poor Phenom line of CPUs. A new architecture is required. You can't polish a turd.

The Athlon64 series was brilliant, I had about 4 AMD machines before my C2D transition. The glory days are over now though.

The love for AMD is rather sickening at the moment. Its only computer hardware! Stop having aroused feelings towards circuit boards and cables!

Last OT: ROFLMAO... Ok, that just means I've seen this movie... cause I remember hearing it in a movie (I think it was one Japanese general to the other right after they attacked Pearl Harbour and he didn't find it a good idea )

Have a lot of fun... laughingsmiley.gif

It's actually Tora Tora Tora

Win 3.1 = well at least it has a kinda functioning GUI
Win 95 = UI MUCH improved over 3.1
Win 98 = the XP and Win 7 of it's time.
Win 2000 = a great OS.
XP = excellent, in its time
Vista = Ok (does not deserve the hate)
Win 7 = Awesome
Win 8 = I love windows 3.1's GUI lets go back to it, and while were at it lets go back even farther.
