It was an impulse buy. I had never even owned an AMD system. I bought it out of no where because a local store had it and i had kinda heard of the hype. Boy am I glad I did
The switch from a 3.0E to the opty 146 actually NETTED me $20 extra . going from a 3.0E to a 2.8 opty and get $20....priceless

With the announcement by amd that the opterons will stay in production, i don't think prices will take a hike and with the new M2 coming out, Price are not likely to go higher...possibly only down. so im keepin my 146.

Plus not everyday you come across a chip that will OC like its nothing
Man, that stepping of 146 is a killing machine. You can hardly find any people selling that stepping of 146 on ebay. They are so damn good. I am glad you decided to keep it even though I want one...

I guess it isn't too shabby....Man my ram really sucks

I gotta give thumbs up to the Typhoon. 38C Full Load after a 40% OC...Heads up to the Big Typhoon.
