Even overclocked the FX-57 will probably beat them stock And the FX-57 is 64-Bit... Yea I know some P4s are 64 bit, but they aren't all that great.

I have had intell my entire pc career.

But so many good things being said about amd, I thought it was a good time to try a single core amd before getting dual cores.

Thanks for all the replies, and I hope you guys are right that I can use my valueram kingston with this dfi board.


Currently I play world war 2 online, and I fly planes. My 3.3 ghz pentium just cant handle the load when I fly.

I hope the sandiego can.

DFI doesnt really like value ram. Also it hates 4 sticks of ram in at one time. Actually i bet it wont work with 4 sticks.

No AMD likes fours stick of RAM at once. Stick with two.

Its not a bad CPU, and it'll last you a couple years. It should easily hit 3.0GHz.

However, you probably won't have problems with a DFI board unless you get the Expert. Stay away from it.

With socket 939 at least he can go dual core later if he can track down one later. Ram wise this should do you good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231047 and DFI boards seem to work well with Gskill. With the high multi you have the advantage of running it 1:1 at a 1t command rate.

kinda weird you'd buy that board and processor considering you are starting fresh anyways....lol.

Oh well.

The DFI is a great motherboard, and the memory issues are overstated...IMMENSELY. Get some TCCD and you'll love it.
