They said they're not competing in performance, that doesn't mean they won't try to beat intel in the low to midrange price/performance. You don't need $1000 chip to play video games. And yes that is somewhat directed at your system.
I buy the best price/performance part at the time. Thus my 3570k and 6950. Prior to the 3570k was my Phenom II x6 1055t.
That's what you did anyways, you bought a mediocre Intel chip instead of buying the AMD or Intel chip that shreds games...
I only paid $100.00 for this 2400 & I saw no reason to switch to IVY Bridge ATM. I do get that alot with the 2400 with more of the higher end users here with higher end chips. Does not bother me any really. The 2400 can easily be replaced as I am not on any budgets. I just saw no reason to switch to IVY ATM over the 2400. Im waiting for Haswell. Only time will tell what happens from here since AMD wont compete anymore. Will it stop Intel from making killer chips, Will Intel Chip Prices Inflate?
I was planning possibly a 670 + a 3570K? as this gen games suck right now and what I play does not use what I have now
