What should I do, I'm feeling wait...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay heres the situation.

My friend have been fighting for months (he is a mac geek, and he and I debate on on my built PC and knowledge being better than his mac all the time)

Anyway, few weeks ago he came to me and told me he wants to build a PC, because he has been jealous of my machine all along better than his Mac!

He and I have been debating on which CPU to get...

I am going to teach him to overclock (which he is most jealous of, hey I'm willing to teach him if he wants to learn)

I thought at first he should go SB because he wanted the best OC possible and it was the best thing out when he was looking to build

Now we are building this summer, and my question is, when is Bulldozer coming out? Im thinking that would more likely be a better choice

$1,400 is the budget for this build
More than likely its gonna have AMD GPU's in it either 6950 or 2x 6850's
Going to a gaming PC more than anything

Any thoughts? Im thinking depending on when Bulldozer comes out, thats probably the best option for his performance in games, and do we have news on AM3+ Mobos yet??

Either way I go, I know I am gonna have fun teaching this kid and hopefully getting him to join OCN of course!!

If your friend just wants to game he should pick up 2 6970's along with a Phenom II 955 or Core i5 2500k

Huh.....I am helping him build this thing so I am also looking for hardware ideas....

And I like that, better GPU's while comprimising on the CPU, not saying those are bad by any means but....hmmmmmm

I like it!

I wasnt expecting it to be that much... So I would be better looking at getting the 1090t then instead of looking a BD? Will there be any lower grade models of BD?

Also just putting it out there, I am assuming just wait on what is to come and start buying this summer?

It wont be $1000. AMD charges roughly $30 per core. Also seeing as these are not full blown cores it will probably be $50 per module. So the lowest clocked will most likely be $200.
