    This is exciting! The performance is solid, overclocking is strong, and multi-threaded apps are brought to their knees...cheaply...
    ...ohh...and AMD is being extremely customer friendly by not completely altering the socket with every new processor.

    Nice to see that AMD still favors us old AM2+ users. :)

    The second they update the bios for my mobo to support a 1090 Ill be buying one. What sucks is they already advertise my board as 6 core capable.

    I called Asus today and am waiting on them to call back.

    Mines listed there too (M4A785-M), it makes me feel a little better, but they gotta roll out these bios's already.

    EDIT: mine says it will support 6 cores from bios 0803, and the current bios is already at 0906, maybe its time to buy a 6 core eh

    I would buy neither :slap:

    $170 24'' LCD would be a TN one and cheap.
    $70 600W PSU = crap
    $120 Radeon 5670 will be under powered to push 1920x1080 resolution.

    The picture is funny tho!

    That would be a side grade not an upgrade why waste your time!

    If you were building a new system or upgrading your current AM2+/AM3 setup I could see that.
