Aw, yall care! I myself will be waiting to upgrade when bulldozer and southern islands make their appearence. He on the other hand has the nmoney now and its burning a hole in his pocket. Ill tell him what youve reccomended and hopefully he'll wait for BD. If not, oh well.

PS 8bitbreed, way to hold it up for AMD guys.

If you do go ahead with this build i would also recomend you getting either a athlon ll 640 and unlocking the l3 cache and turn it into a phenom ll, witch has about a 95% pass rate or a 840t and unlock 2 exta cores, cnt coment on that chip never had one.

BD is the way foward for maximum speed and satisfaction.

I know it is AMD section and honestly, I am a huge AMD fan, but it is not worth it to get the build he is looking at. I just built a much better intel build for the same amount.

But! to all who suggest the 2500k, i am appreciative. I respect the intel platform, but he and i are both AMD guys.
The critisism is understood and thanked nonetheless.!

If you had do it now...would recommend 2500k...if you can wait a bit...do Bulldozer...

Don't call me a intel fan..this is my first intel rig since my pent2...had AMD since athlons were kicking intels butt left and right...had a AM2 CPU and even a PhenII .... I am gathering parts in antication of BD.... but currently I will admit 2500k is the best bang for buck CPU right now... I am hoping BD will destroy it and bring competitive preformance and prices back to the desktop market

OK here is a fun AMD build for $1100. Adding the H60 keeps you well under $1100, but adding the HDD puts you a tad over, BUT you have lots of rebates all from Corsair who is good with them. But still, you can get an even more killer Intel rig, but this is still a fine build.

Wildcards build looks good, and then just upgrade to bulldozer after a little while. Remember, the original chips will always have problems, hopefully they aren't major, but you know that a 1090t will perform reliably, which simply cannot be guaranteed for a processor at launch. People are going to buy it, but I would recomend waiting, you will probably be better off for it!
