I can probably fit in a 4870 (or 4850 or an equally good nVidia card) within that $delta if I am resourceful enough.
I was referring to the AM3 version of the Phenom II when it is released. I am not arguing that an AM2+ Phenom II system will ultimately be cheaper than an i7 system.

Man, these things keep impressing me everytime I hear about it! I might actually go AMD next time I build!

Far as i know the 790GX is the same jazz but a little better. So why not give them it?

I will never use their motherboards again as well. But don't be so quick to rule out their GPU. They are more then good at making them fast, all they need is to make it so i don't see BSOD everywhere i look. And of course make sure they are cheaper then AMD's alternatives.

Right, if they ever get decent drivers I might try them again.

these where teams of overclockers with lots of experience man...

today was the first time I ever tried some extreme benching with crysis and it took me 1 try to get to 4.45 and not a single bsod super stable at those settings vcore is high but we also dont know what kind of vcore amd used to get to those speeds. (I know I can run 4.45 at 1.4 I just messed up and loaded a preset that I didnt mean to load (4.6 setttings) (I can run 4.4 on air I have ran 4.5+ before on air)

Not saying these arent impressive cause they are very much so for an amd chip. Hopefully this amd chip does good so intel can speed it up with 32nm


btw this is what you get at 4.44 with i7

I was planning on saving up for an i7...Looks like I'm going AMD lmao.

Phenom 2 is looking to be the coolest thing everr.

With your i7 chip there is really no comparison though. That chip costs what like $1000? This Phenom is said to come out around >$300.

Not flaming but just saying.

LOL @ 1.536v.

I really do feel bad for you guys that spent 1000 dollars on a 965 and are now in this phenom II thread desperately trying to defend your purchase. Especially you "45nm". It seems to me like you are trying to justify i7 over p2 in this thread, but secretly you are trying to justify it to yourself because you just got reamed for 1000 bucks. Did you really need a 965 over a 920, or are you just trying to let your nuts hang a little bit? It's cool man I'm not going to hate.

I am very happy that AMD got their **** together. I anticipated this CPU and that is why I bought my sig system instead of a Q6600 or a Q9450. The upgrade path is awesome, and many people out there will take the same upgrade path that I'm on with AM2+ mobos. Plus the price difference will put AMD back in the game and finally get Intels ridiculous prices down. Better products, better prices - thats what its all about.

We can quibble on semantics, dual vs triple channel memory, cf and sli support vs cf only, but at the end of the day, the P2 and i7 are looking pretty damn close so far in everything except price. And by the way, 99.99999 percent of people with computers don't care about having CF and Sli support simultaneously. IMO its useless.
