About the 990fx..

I am not only waiting for that but I want the Bulldozer too. I just hope they get off there asses and intro the damned thing. I want the same board in an ASUS or ASRock or Gigabyte and a Bulldozer and some 1333 DDr3 Ram.
Believe me, I likely won't be using Eggsaver ever again.

As for the 990FX.

Remember Bulldozer itself is just the platform around which their entire new architecture is based. The "Zambezi" chips, are the high end, enthusiast level chips on the Bulldozer platform, for Desktop PC's. Those are scheduled for very early Q2; word is they'll be available in April. Those are the chips that everyone keeps calling "Bulldozer".

Bulldozer itself, the platform, is scheduled for Q1; while the Bulldozer SERVER platform with accompanying Server Chips, is to launch in Q3.

So... launching the Bulldozer Platform itself in Q1, means they can release the motherboards before the Zambezi desktop chips. Smart move in my opinion as that gives us more of an option in regards to keeping our current AM3 chips and grabbing the boards so we're ready for the chips, as yes, the current AM3 chips ARE supposed to be compatible on the AM3+ Bulldozer platform!

I'm planning for an Asus board myself. But I probably won't jump on the Chips yet, stick to using my current Phenom II x4 955 on the Board, with my existing DDR3 1600 ram. Then maybe get the Zambezi Chip at a later date... depends on the price, and need...

As really, most of us out there, still don't really need much more then 2 - 4 cores still anyway! LOL Most high end Games hardly use more then 2 cores, unless they're a really bad port from a console box like GTAIV or BF2:BC... which are very CPU intensive games and hog up the cores...

But then, not everyone out there is a gamer either!

Video editing and processing software for example, can be demanding on CPU cores. Powerful 3D programs, Cad programs and such, also would love to run on a 6 or 8 core chip!

For what I push my Scout through, a Quad would be just fine...

But...

If the price is right, I might consider an 8 Core!

^^ Yup same, I was gonna get myself a better Mobo (890FXA or 870A Fuzion Power) and some DDR3, but the 990FX Mobo's aint far away now, so I'm just gonna hold out for them, get a good one, throw my CPU in it and wait for reviews and something with a good price among the Zambezi's.

I don't think I'll be jumping in on the first batch, usually the second revision onwards is better, but price and performance will ultimately decide that when the time comes.

Great deal on the Lian Li.. That is nomally a 200 to 300 dollar all aluminum case and those wheels are solid billet aluminum. Are you still going with the first Cave theme for the SCOUT??

yes. going with green/black color theme. Black items will be the front black bezel, top black handle area, HD/5.25 bays and pcie covers. Green items will be front mesh, mb tray and the rest of the case. Then i will have the 1ST Cav image painted on the front mesh with green 120/140mm fans. Just trying to find out if i want to do a green that is shiny or dull. Been trying to find a yellowish plexy for the side(help blend in the 1st yellow on the front) but dont know if that might make the green led's inside a orangeish color and throw off the whole feel of the case or not. Thats my thoughts on how i want the case done. I see it in my head pretty well but its hard to put it into pics since i dont do photo editeing, and well, you saw my photoshop skillz or lack there of.

I do have plans for the Lian later on....much later on LOL. Only thing about the Lian i dont like is it is black exterior with the aluminum interior look. But since im going to be using it for a short time im not to woried about it.

I have not progressed any further on the scout project. waiting till friday/weekend to get painting/ordering the green led fans. Still need to cut out the HD tray's/5.25 area so i can have my GPU's fit.

Ram Upgrade arrived.. finally!

Matching the existing G-Skill set that I already have, bumping myself to 8gb's.

Likely will not see any difference with the Gaming, but I recently got into a program called Blender, though I don't actually do much with it yet cause its learning curve is confusing as hell! LOL ... but, the 8gb will help that program run better.

I also do a lot in Second Life, which tends to eat up memory depending on which Client software you're using to access SL; so hoping it will help that too. SL is more internet based, so things should load a little quicker there. Also, if I can ever figure out Blender, then I can use it to create things that I can upload into SL... which could be, interesting.

Now I just gotta sit her for another 3 hours before I can leave work and go home to install it!

I do apologize for this cleaning but it's going way off topic now... we have a Windows section for that sort of question, just make sure you know that you're discussing activities that are legal and within the ToS. I was going to simply move the posts to their own thread in that section but I think it's better that you start fresh. I appreciate your understanding and edits per the rules, however, Telnets. You saved me a bit of trouble.
