when I was on intel I could only afford RAM and GPU upgrades and Double Downs [SLI / RAM] $500-$1000
Now on AM3 I buy CPUs RAM GPUs like crazy LOL [Had 2 5770, Sold BOTH, Now I have one, planning to sell for 5830, X6 Soon, Double Up on RAM, plus Bulldozer!] $1500-$2500
maybe intel was more affordable after all, nah this scales like crazy and allows me to upgrade faster

So what have I become? A notch above the regular run of the mill user but with a lot of know-how and tricks up my sleeve, specially in modding and to a lesser extent in hardware. I guess like the majority here, hehe.

Well said, I agree very much with that, I'm vice versa tho, less of a modder and more of a hardware nut. My sense of efficiency does not allow me to consider an nVidia GPU, and hardly anything from intel is worth the ratio, damn their evil HT LOLEdited by PsychoKilla666 - 5/23/10 at 4:13pm
