Friend gets 1090T Over Intel 2500K - Page 4

post #31 of 82
Some people just want to do it themselves. He'll take it as a learning experience when, sometime down the road, he looks back and realizes the mistake he made.

It's his choice though, and even if he went with it just because he prefers AMD, then that's his right.

If he did it for gaming and wanted the best performance, he made the wrong move. Obviously, the Sandy Bridge is, by far, vastly superior for gaming. The Phenom II will still hold up, but when you think about it, he barely just about got LGA775/Core 2 platform performance there. Considering that was for the same price he could have gotten of Sandy Bridge instead (if that's true), then yeah, that's just a bad move no matter how you look at it. It's not a bad CPU by any means, but intentionally choosing the much inferior one for the same price is still a bad choice.

If he buys a new computer every 2-3 years he probably won't be sweating it.

Honestly even an AMD x4 955 will be able to play anything out there just fine for 2-3 years paired with the right graphics card.

But yeh... he didn't utilize the money too well.

I don't think he can return his CPU.

Perhaps he should sell it for cheap to me
