I COMPLETELY agree with you and Derp... thats y in parenthesis i said W*F that was not only for the stock watts but also pricing....how the hell does a company jump from 199.99 to 349.99 for only a 0.4GHZ frequency increase, when their prev flagship model was the same amt of cores significantly cheaper and then always say that "we are a value\performance company for gamers on a budget" really??? They really dropped the ball on this 10 times over and I was never a fan boy, still am not, but I built my first gaming rig 10+ years ago and I alternated between Intel and AMD, I did have more AMDs than Intels, my first rig being AMD, but as of right now the Haswell 4770K is looking really attractive for my upcoming high end gaming build. On my profile I have both builds one for the 8350 and one for the Haswell, check it out when you guys get a chance and let me know what u think and lets keep this forum ALIVE!!!!
