Hey Gents

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclockers. I'm new to the forum and fairly new to the pc gaming world (console player my whole life). Earlier this year while talking to a friend, I was convinced to try pc gaming. So I went ahead and built my AMD machine.

Fast forward to present day, I've been having fun with this chip but want to get more out of it till it's time to upgrade. I'm sure I've fallen into the right place here .

welcom aboard. i think you will find that there are many opinions here, most of them good ones and if you are an amd fan the new chip should be out next year to compete with intel. maybe all the prices on chips will come down a little.
