and you said that on the last page or something. said the 980x is too much for what you get
There is no reason for a dual core to cost that much. Phenom Ii x2 hits 4ghz also. Fanboys still buy it.

You play cpu heavy games on a dual core?? Should we go any further?

You are a fanboy by justifying an expensive dual core to "play cpu heavy games".

Exactly, you get more for your $$$ with the phenom II than a old dead socket 775 core2,simple as that.
FSX works just fine on a dual core,you'd get better performance with the quad though.

yes lol..fsx has its settings all jacked up and i get 30-40fps even in congested areas and even with high quality add ons


BC2 runs fine too, 40-45.


dual cores are not dead yet. its all about the speed.


i realize the price point is cheaper for AMD for quads but i have a really nice motherboard, a really nice cpu, and i'm perfectly fine.

It's price doesn't justify it's performance though which is why the x6 is such a good value chip, also an x6 and the i7(from what i've seen) evenly dances with each other. I would of picked up the x6 if i didn't started my build back in January, i wasn't really feeling the phenom x4 chips IMO, but the x6 makes up for that easily. I would suggest people who are now starting to build their pc's to get an x6, plus you can upgrade to bulldozer. For me i think my i7 860 should last me 2-3 years before upgrading
Oh trust me the 980x price is worth every penny. If you actually used it for what it's ment to be used for such as rendering, encoding or converting...etc you will see what I mean. For example I am converting 20 1080p movies each 10+gb my CPU is doing 12 at a time and it's only takig 4hours!

I was reading another thread last night a guy with a 1090T was converting one 1080p movie and it's taking him 5hours.

Meh,the dual is nice at its clock,but would choke BC2 or have low frames on FSX if it weren't @ 3.9Ghz.

look, i dont NEED a quad. i dont encode, i dont do any of that crap. i just game. you got a 6 core, yay. i dont need one at this moment. therefore i am fine with my dual core. it does what i want it to do and with good performance. scored 30k on the CPU score in vantage.

I did not say the 980x is not worth the money. My problem is comparing a $300 cpu to a $1000 cpu.

about the thuban and encoding why is it so easy for you to believe lol? Have you not seen that your cpu is clocked over 4ghz?

as for your claims
