Ideas are always welcome.
I was a AMD CPU Fanboi for the longest time. I loved the perormance to price point the offerd. but with the i5 2500k being faster clock per clock, clocking higher not to mention with micocenter's deal on the i5 and mobo's its a total steal! Dont get me wrong. I love AMD, and will continue to use there products. I think I might use BD in my home server even. but for my main rig the i5 was a nice change up. the $488 I spent for a new os, my ASUS board, and my i5 was money well spent. Glad I got the i5 before I got some real GPU power, if the 955 at 4.0 was holding back my single 6970 it would have really put a cage on two 6970's
