Do I feel more like a traitor or a thief? - Page 2

He may not have known that the Opty is a dual-core chip. But you did all you could by 'splainin to him that Opty's are better chips and if he still balks then it's his loss for sure!

It'd just be nice to "Upgrade" my system for basically nothing ($100 is a lot cheaper than selling what i have and buying all new again)

i personally like intel, but cant really judge due to lack of experience with AMD.

Tell him that an Opty IS an X2 chip, cept it's made on a different fab with better silicon. That guy's an idiot.

So uh, a fanboy who doesn't even know what the different chips are? How sad..

That's like an intel fanboy saying they don't know what a xeon processor is.

Ive always been an AMD guy, but the latest benchmarks were just too heavily tilted toward Intel. I have always been an AMD guy, but you get the chips that perform the best. I was pleased with my last AMD chip, and I am pleased with my new Core 2 Duo (if i could get my temps down)

wow, sounds like my story, i had amd for 8+ years till last month when i built the rig in my system details, man, im impressed with intel on this one! i felt like an amd traitor, but that feeling passed in like 2 minutes into my first benchmark;-)

and back on topic, man your getting a good deal, the guy doesnt know his stuff, thats for sure.

Well, i'm debating...The Opty 165 will have to be o/c'd (given i could do it with your board) to keep up w/ my E6400...just trying to decide if i want to go through that...i'll get back to you before the end of this week though.
So it sounds like my "Opty is an X2 cept better" talk paid off. I may have some building to do this weekend.

Hi ae804,

Good luck with your project and that was a really nice find! An Opty for a Conroe. Like trading a 4 year old, 6 cylinder Camaro for a new V8 Corvette... for $100.00.

I guess his loss is your gain! :-)
