windows vista ?? should i wait - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I would wait a while before getting Vista . Even though it will be good it wiull still have a lot of bugs in it. The hardware requiments arnt all that demanding with Vista anyway IMO.

I've been helping edy in trying to decide on a system to build......

At first we were debating between spending the money on an amdfx57, or just getting an amd64 4000, and overclocking it (however my other friend built a system with the fx57, dfi ultra sli motherboard and 2gig of oczplatinum pc4000 ram and two raptor 75gig hd's, he's running a nvidia 7800gt video card) The fx57 without an overclock on that system is benchmarking at 93000 aquamark3 score. My system is a amd3500 overclocked to 2.8 on the same video card and ram, i'm only benchmarking at 86000..... So, I would assume a fx57 overclocked on the same video card would give awesome results?

the questions is.... is it worth the money to buy the fx57? and would the amd64 4000 overclocked be more then enough? (i've read that the x2's aren't the best for gaming, a good single core processor overclocked can do better)

You'd be better off getting a 3700+ instead of a 4000+ and overclocking that, they have been hitting 3.0 these days. Then you could get 2x7900gt's maybe.
