And on top of that you have to sit by while it works out any issues over this period of time before you decide to step up to Bulldozer.

It's easier and better to go 4 Core AMD right now as no program is made specifically for 6 Cores. It's kind of like how it was way back when MS first put out XP 64bit a total lack of support doomed that OS.

~Ceadder
Yeah I laughed when he said that this thing was worth it. I bet it will fry and he wont honor the warranty

PS I love how the guy says the gfx card will run most games medium to high settings. I watched the video he posted it was crysis at about 10fps

EDIT: Yeah I would love to see the bulldozer run on that system.....Yay it boots....crap....no it doesnt....shouda went with the crosshair


PS you know what would be amazing? If someone out of state would order my parts then pay them to ship here NO TAX!!!! But I dunno anyone

PS should I get it from ZZF or newegg

IDK, never did any research on the newer Intel CPU's. The other system I'm putting together is from spare parts I still had laying about. It's a water cooled Foxconn Black Ops board with an Intel Q9550 CPU. That's the last era of Intel CPU I did any research on.

Oh nice I think im gonna go with amd though. Even if they are a lil bit faster than amd intel can never upgrade.

I'm not even going to break down the list cause I'd be in tears by the end of it. lol

Tears of joy that is. Still it was cheaper than comparative Intel parts. Look how much a Rampage MoBo costs compared to the Croshair IV.

~Ceadder
True, true. I still need a blu ray burner and probably a 2TB HDD. and the CH4 and GPU waterblock

but it's okay I guess, it's not like I will buy another screen, soundcard, mobo, speakers, ram, case, or PSU for my next 2-3 upgrades. I think all I'll be upgradaing is my GPU and CPU.

everyone has something to say about it, just read the 200 pages and I'm sure you'll find something

Anyway, has anyone successfully tried the SLI hack on this board yet? I was thinking that if I go nVidia, then it'll be a complete waste of PCI-E lanes if I can't SLI it ever, and I could've gone with a GX then

Yup exactly...

And I won't be upgrading the CPU for at least a year if not slightly longer.

But I've finally started my own Build Log...

2000th post, just thought I'd put that in here and on page 200, too bad I wasn't 20 again.
