Win an AMD Trinity APU! - Page 46

When do you plan to upgrade your Desktop PC?


I plan to upgrade in the upcoming weeks, partially because of holiday blowouts, and partially because I have heard the new Piledrivers are great in comparison to the Bulldozers and the competition of Intel products.


What do you look for when selecting a processor upgrade?

When I am scouting for a new processor, I want something that will overclock to massive speeds (such as 5.0 GHz or higher), max any game, start my build up in four seconds flat, and cost a fraction of what Intel is marketing nowadays, because we all know that even though Intel sells powerhouse processors, THEY ARE THE BIGGEST RIP-OFF TO TRUE BUDGET GAMERS. Since the power of processors being released these days is so high, everyday "needs" can be suited by the weakest of CPUs. When someone says they are looking to go all out and purchase a high end processor, that could technically mean anything that goes beyond their definition of "daily needs". My definition of "daily needs" is gaming, overclocking, and beating the competition-- without breaking the bank.
