Awesome overclock, I'd take this over the e8400 because the third core could be useful for some video encoding . Too bad I don't have the money to switch motherboards or I'd get something like this.

I am still hoping that we will see a hybrid GPU core in a CPU that will help govern the actual GPU and pre-process certain information, was hoping to see a tru AMD ATI Chip hehe



My actual thought was That I WANT TO BUILD AMD!!!

but I have 4 x 1 Sticks of DDR3 1600mhz Ram, But I woul donly be able to run them at 1066mhz??
About your ram, it really depends. Some people experienced the issue (many people to state the truth) but some who chose to use high-end modules didn't get affected, so you'd have to actually try it for yourself in order to figure it out. However even if you do experience that ram problem, you could:
1) Just run the RAM at 1066 for a week or 2 tops, time needed for AMD to develop a fix.
2) Run the RAM at 1066 and follow their recommendations on how to improve RAM's perf so that you don't really suffer from the issue.
3) Wait for the fix to be out to actually buy the mobo + cpu (but by then they might be out of stock )

Personaly I'd go with option number 2 if I'd get that problem. But then considering how much the RAM I'm buying is gonna cost me, I'd expect it not to have any trouble.

Sounds like a monster of a chip.

Would love to see some benchmark comparisons vs. the q6600 and the q9450/9550.

At that price though... it certainly looks like a great deal.
Go Green!

It's a legitimate question. Unlike some people here, I hold no brand loyalty, I will buy whatever is considered the best, all things considered (price, performance, etc).

I too would like to see how these compare clock for clock vs some of intel's offerings.

No no. Its in my Pre-calc, calc I, calc II books. Zero is even.

Lookies:
quoted from wikianswers.

-any sum of 2 even numbers will always be EVEN
-any sum of 2 odd numbers will always be EVEN
-any sum of an odd and even will be ODD

so example

2 even numbers: -2+2=0
2 Odd numbers : -1+1=0
an Odd and Even number: -1+2=1
