Lookin to make my 2nd build AMD should i wait for the new processors?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i'm lookin to build my second computer, and was wondering wether i should wait for the new cores before i do it, or go ahead and build it with and am3+ mobo and then get one of the new processors when they're out. Also does anybody have any info on these new processors compared to intel processors?

I would personally wait for the Bulldozer if you are planning to build an AMD rig. Or just buy a Phenom now and sell it to me when you upgrade ;-)

^ but why. He has a working* sig rig (*Intel spite) and then he would have to buy a second processor after just a few weeks/months.

you can build a 9xx setup and put in a athlon/phenom x2/4 as a placeholder and upgrade to the bd later

I have a feeling AMD is mad and looking for revenge, intel played hard ball with them and kept them out of a couple markets, condeming research and devolpment.
I think bulldozer is going to astound a lot of people. wait for BD and build it. I have a feeling you won't regret it.

You'd look like the wise cow that moo'd , 2 months later..

throw in an athlon x2 .. I just lost a PC over a bet =/ so I put in the cheapest possible components today!!
An athlon x2 250
some cheapo asus mobo w ddr3
2x2 G.skills ram ( from my rig)
a 19inch AOC 900p monitor .
cheapo 400W PSU
no kb/mouse!
A coolermaster cabinet w/ an extra R4
Guess what it cost me ?
lol

210$ xD
THat athlon was for pocket change - 44$ .. buy that now .. and then you can slot in 300$ BD's in a coupla months!
It wouldn't even hurt if you threw the processor away !!
