I want this CPU already. I'm keeping my current one alive barely on life support.

All I want is decent comparison! Something to let me know if I should spend my money on a i7 970 or 980x or wait out a Bulldozer build (strictly based on folding and total budget expenditure) At this point I have counted SB as not in the equation with it's current iterations

I'd think the answer to that would probably be Bulldozer, at least looking at points/$.

That's my hope but with BD I will have to account for a full system purchase, the i7 6 core would only be a processor upgrade I am rooting for BD atm though just frustrated with not having any good info to lean on!

In that case, know anyone that works for Best Buy, etc? I think you can get Gulftown for less than $300 from Retail Edge.

Thread Starter 
One thing you will never see me do is tell you what to buy. I don't want to be responsible for your purchase.

You should wait until all of the information is available and then make your decision. What if I give you some of the data and you make the wrong choice? I don't want that hanging over my head.

I get about 5 "what should I buy" emails/PMs a day and I answer them all the same way. I work with customers and I make purchase recommendations all the time, but I spend an hour or more going over their workloads, understanding how their applications act and what their needs are. I don't know the desktop world, so I steer clear of trying to guess in those places.

I have a question for you. Why haven't you filled out your system specs?

Because he doesn't want us to know that his personal machine has 4 Bulldozer based Opteron's in it and 1 TB of RAM.
