Its great that you can afford it, but for me and many others, we have a hard time trying to justify spending $1,000 on a chip and $1,200 on GPU's. That's just a bit overkill. Its clear that you're an enthusiast.

I think what most people are concerned about is price/performance. I can spend $5,000 on a gaming machine...but was is that $5,000 going to get me, high benchmark scores? And once you have your $5,000 monster all built and put together...I'm pretty sure you're going to upgrade again mid 09 when DX11 becomes popular and your $1,200 GPU solution becomes obsolete.

Point is, AMD does not need to be the best in benchmarking for mainstream consumers to be interested. I just need a CPU thats not going to bottleneck my GPU. If it can get me higher FPS for a good price, hey great for me. For enthusiasts like you, if the hefty price for your rig is worth it, thats wonderful, more power to you. But for mainstream customers, I'll keep the extra $4,000 dollars I'll save and invest that money into something else.
agrees... then again, enthusiast also have the little feel of power inside them.
And i'm not referring to anyone right now, so save your time quoting me...

They think they are allowed to bash less budget people just because they can afford things other people cant.

Please dont tell me you drive something under 5 grand lol
I paid about 9x as much for my computer as I did for my 78 Chevy pickup... which was about $400. Does that say anything to you? Cuz it shouldn't. Anything you probably assume from that little bit of info is probably wrong... or at least half of it. No offense iggster, cuz I can afford an expensive system too, but you are kinda sounding like you've got an epeen (it was the $5k car statement)...

And my $400 truck, its a work truck, and a beast at that... its ugly, but work trucks don't need to be shiny, they need to get work done. Speaking of which, its time to drive through the snow to my jobsite to check on the scaffolding.... we just had snow storm #3, and no warm temps to melt the snow...

You're in Toronto and you have you're hands on a Phenom II 945 chip ?. Something smell's fishy here.

He has a Phenom II 940. Not 945. He forgot to edit the first post.

Also, its not that hard to believe, there is an AMD Canada Headquarters in Ontario. Maybe he knows someone who works there or something. You never know.

That sounds about right. 3DMark06 starts to hit a wall at around 22k or so, and you really won't get any higher unless you have a quad OC'd to 5 or 6GHz on ln2, regardless of the video card(s) you have.

Oh and Table21, I really hope you have not gotten rid of the CPU yet. I would love to see what score you get in this benchmark at 4GHz.

Once again, how do we know this? Surely if it was performing up to exceptions you guys wouldn't be calling it a bad chip. Excuses, excuses.

Maybe if you read the thread....

The OP stated that the chip was *bad*. In what way, we don't know.

But he said that was part of the reason the cpu was given to him.

He would not just make up some lie like that..

and where is it not performing up to expectations? There aren't even many good indicators yet. 3DMark06 does not dictate how good a cpu is in real-world usage.

I agree with this philosophy 110%
I remember back when I played Magic: The Gathering I heard stories about people who played Vintage and had more expensive decks than cars.
