Hey, its been a couple 5 years since I've built a computer.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey all, Alex here or CaptaiNeckBeard if you prefer. Its been at least 5 years since i have built a computer and that's like an eternity in computer years. I currently do not have a desktop, just a lappy (dell). I've come to ask questions, get help and maybe help others out. Although I'll probably just lurk in the shadows, lol, I'm really good at creeping, just ask my girlfriend, lol. I want to get into computer gaming again and overclocking. Thanks all in advance. thumb.gif

Well I'm glad to hear that, the last desktop was a Athlon64 socket 939, now that I've been reading up doesn't seem like AMD is doing as well as those days.

Yea, I am not a business or marketing pro, but it seems AMD might start to focus on the mobile and fusion market. Intel is dominating the performance market with SB, SB-E, and the soon to be IB and IB-E. It's not that Bulldozer was a BAD CPU, Windows just didn't know how to handle it, and, for example, would only make use of two BD cores while gaming on an 8-core chip.

As said above, overclocking isn't as hard as it used to be 5 years ago. Anytime you feel the need to go in for new parts, we're here to help.
