No argument here.

I built my system about 2 months ago,i'm happy with it so far. I might get a Bulldozer,if the higher end 4 core,or 8 core isn't too expensive. I almost need a graphics card,this rig is on integrated ATI graphics. I dunno which to get,a GTX560 Ti or a HD6870.

1920x1050 or something along those lines. I never remember the last numbers. I used Crysis 2 as an example. I run all these games fine though:
Dragon age 2
Crysis 2
AC brotherhood
starcraft 2

I actually can't think of a game that really weakened my confidence in my PC besides the ****ty optimizations of Splinter Cell Convictions and metro 2033 on full settings laughed at my computer. It is time though for a new build for me, the CPU is running really hot for some reason lately and funny noises are coming from the case LOL. Crysis 2 is a port...what the hell isn't though? Star craft 2 and? ....man that is sad. Oh yea Shogun 2..I have yet to play that game.

June 2011.
Prices unknown.
The mainstream chips should be about the same as 2500K-2600K price bracket.

The 8 core CPU will be more expensive, 300 dollars if i had to guess.

Don't feel bad, in the benchmark for Metro 2033 I can't even break 60 fps average with everything maxed / DX11 and DOF on, actual gameplay is better, but yah... its a beastly game for sure.

Yea, so I heard. That game was harsh, it runs okay on medium settings with all AA off. I never cared to upgrade CPU though because logically I can't understand what getting more cores would do considering for example I just saw my brother play Mass Effect 2 on his Quad Core Phenom and that game doesn't dip past 2 cores ever for him. Kind of a waste, though he does stream HD and complains that he needs more cores so I guess it depends for what application you need. Bulldozer will be my upgrade, I hope it isn't just more cores lol. I'm just really more debating on what to do with the video card because I want to get a GTX570 but people are saying that the Nvidia Keplar GPUS are on the way for this year.

Goin more cores is always advantageous when TDP is nearly the same and your concerned about power consumption =)

If you have a 125w 6core part vs a 125w dual core part. If all you ever use on that 6core is 2 cores then your power consumption is significantly lower because the other 4 cores are idling.

Some games improve with more than 2 cores, others don't. Just depends on how they're coded.

Also I stopped playing Metro 2033 because I got too scared It looks a bit too real for me sometimes and when those monsters come out in packs from the shadows it had me yelling irl

"AMD plans to release four eight-core AMD FX8000-series chips, two six-core AMD FX6000-series microprocessors and two quad-core AMD FX4000-series central processing units (CPUs) this year. Shipments of AMD FX-series high-end desktop microprocessors will commence on the week of June 20th, 2011, the same document indicated. The first breed of AMD FX8000, FX6000 and FX4000 currently known under Zambezi code-name will completely support all the advantages that the Bulldozer micro-architecture is supposed to bring, including new Flex FP floating point processing unit. The new chips in maximum eight-core configurations are projected - by AMD's internal documents - to offer roughly 50% performance improvement over Phenom II-series microprocessors in multimedia applications."

It probably looks great on your system. Mine didn't look to real haha. I'm going to save that game for my next build because playing it now will cripple the experience. Bioshock 2 was 5 bucks on steam yesterday and I picked it up so maybe I will finally get to play the sequel to the first one that I liked.

Anyway, being that this is a bulldozer thread I have to say I hope it stays on track and comes out in June. I already have the $$$ ready, I will check the bench marks obviously quickly to make sure this isn't some fast one that AMD is trying to pull. Happy over clocking and gaming!

I can see the advantage of that when over clocking.
