so you would need a good 650w

Glad to hear, this means if I was an AMD user buying a new AMD motherboard would mean I would be ready for faster IPC when BD comes out!!! Oh wait.... whats this then?

To be on the safe side, I would probably go with a 900 watt PSU.

So, i went and read through all that, and it was rather underwhelming. Yes, i know the platform need some time to mature, but even so, its... lame, for a lack of a better term.

Guess when i do upgrade to an AMD system (i decided on this a long time ago), im just gonna grab a PhII x6, a decent board with at least 3 PCI-E x16 slots, a decent midrange card, and just leave it at that for a few years.

It is hard to find value in the $245 FX-8150 when the X6 1100T retails for a mere $190. That is almost 30% cheaper and you are getting very similar performance in all but the most highly-threaded applications. With 3 to 4 years of development time, a new manufacturing process, and twice as many transistors as a Phenom II X6, you can't blame us for being slightly disappointed. Heck, the FX-8150 doesn't even consume less power than the Phenom II X6 1100T.
The 1090T can actually be found for $159 these days, it's basically the same as the 1100T...

AMD really screwed up hard, but what life has taught me is that success evolves from failure and that history always repeats itself. So one day no matter how long it takes them, AMD will have the crown again...

On a more positive note im glad my i7 920 easily keeps up and even beats the "8 core" FX-8150 cpu in some cases

Well it would look like all of my half computer literate friends will come at me like the next messiah now for denying Bulldozer being possibly good with all my heart. Except for poor Nick... who bought a AM3+ Motherboard and decided to never use it.
