Yea I was a bit tight for cash when I built this rig last year (being a student will do that) but for the price i payed for that cpu, it has been fantastic compared to my old core 2 duo.
Im on an am3+ board so the next generation of bulldozer cpu's (if they are worth getting) is certainly a possibility.
I just cant justify spending more money on an intel cpu + mobo and be bothered with the hassle of a re install of windows... again lol
I would rather stick to my current mobo+cpu combo for a little while longer as it serves its purpose quite well
Edit: no longer a student by the way lol, full time job as a computer technician = more money in the bank and i got my diploma yesterday Edited by Wiffinberg - 3/26/12 at 5:52pm
