Im happy (and a little proud...?) to say that after arguing enoguh and showing him this thread, he is now awaiting bulldozer and will be ordering a sabertooth mobo am3+ board and kingston hyper x 1600mhz ram this week!
You guys are a great help, and i thank you all for that. Except those of you who offered no advice and opted to be aarogant and snide. Those guys are extemely hopeless. But to the rest of you heres a thumbs up.
Well done! A good choice. Glad you were able to make him see the light. He will be much happier in the long run.

Unless we find out BD is only as fast as Nehalem clock for clock, a very distinct possibility.

So your the reason he's going to blow 200 on a board then blow another 200 in 6 months when Bulldozer Enhanced is released? Genius

Wow man, you need to just sit down for a second, take a deep breath, and chill.
Somone once told me that if you consistantly wait for the enxt best thing, youll always be waiting. I am quite sure bulldozer will do just fine. And even if the revision is better, i doubt he will care after he plays on the rig i build for him. Plus, you seem to be the only one around here with the notion that bulldozer wont be sufficient.
Not trying to be mean, but i dont take kindly to people with rediculousl rude opinions. Try this, find a nice person to hang around for a while, get to know them, and learn a thing or two.
