AMD X2 dying - Page 2

post #11 of 26
AM2 is rubbish, I saved a good amount of money going s939 and I went with more proven parts and that made me feel better. Also, when I need to upgrade I'm gonna go for a whole new mobo-cpu-RAM setup... I<3 my s939

I love my S939 too. I got a free mobo off a friend which started me on my trek for a real rig to keep my overclocking ambitions in check. I might go AM3 but being a high school student with little to no cash thanks to the rip-off of Car insurance, I'll be keeping this for a few years but with no complaints.

Looks like my chip is going to be an antique
The thing is, us who already have s939 who want to go dual core will have to either buy the $200+ CPU or buy an AM2 board, a CPU, and a copy of windows.... This is stupid... I am running out of options here... the Opteron 165 better stay in stock...

EDIT, I forgot, we also need to buy new RAM... we may as well build an entire new PC....

Be quick mate the Opteron 165 stops production soonish...All the tell tail signs as its production from AMD is dead slow and also in November 939 will start to dissapear.

It is being put out by AM2, and also although I am an amd fan I have to say so far in the little stuff I have seen about cd2 is beating the x2.
