But seriously how could you even know what its like to have a 3,8ghz intel quad when your running a AMD cpu? Ive owned a Brisbane 4000+ that did 3.1, a 6000+ that did 3.45 and im telling you that they just don't cut it in terms of performance. Of course many will argue that the quad is more expensive and requires more pricey cooling, motherboard etc. No offense but those people with high end gpu's running AMD CPUs.....the bottleneck is killing your performance and your value for money. Why fork out heaps of $$ for a great system and limit it with a cpu. I'm not saying they suck I'm just saying intel offers much better value for money.

I am and never will be a fan boy so fanbois please f*** off. I am simply using my logic.

I like how you even curse in your posts, way to be non-confrontational. In my experience, I don't need this "Performance". I just played Assassins Creed. 1440x900, all high settings, framerate always playable. I can do the same with Gears of War, NFS Pro Street, Bioshock, etc... I never claimed to know what it's like to "own an Intel" as if that will be some revelation, I just said a 6400 is going to do everything he needs to do just fine. The bleeding edge of performance might be important to those who want to benchmark, or get the highest possible framerates, but I've got a 700mhz slower CPU and I can play games and do everything I need to, productively and efficiently. AMD's high end now are quad core processors, and those are proving to be very close to the intel equivalent, so how are they a huge bottleneck? Sure, K8 is outperformed, but it still works just fine.

I can understand upgrading because you need to do a certain task and your hardware just can't handle it, but it just seems like a waste of money to upgrade to a different system if yours works fine for everything you do. Not to mention, most of the use here is for games, why are we getting Quad cores for games when most hardly utilize 2 threads?

no they will not be AM2+ socket, they will be AM3 but still able to work in an AM2+ socket, and no it does not go the other way around, by putting an AM2+ CPU into an AM3 mobo. basically the biggest change with the jump from AM2+ to AM3 is that AMD users can finally use DDR3 (AM3 only).

The 780G is supposed to be able to use AM3 with DDR3, but I don't know if maybe later revisions will have the DDR3 slots...
