    Those with the latest and greatest in hardware like to complain about how stagnant graphics are these days because of consoles, but it's great for the rest of the unwashed masses to catch up and enjoy decent graphics at affordable prices. I don't see the need to upgrade from my Athlon II X2 250 for another 2-3 years, hopefully a used Phenom II X6 can be had for $50 on ebay by that time :D

    I just regret going too cheap when building my PC a year ago, my Radeon 4650 can barely run modern games at 720p at decent fps (trying to hold out for the Radeon 7000s series before upgrade GPU).

    IMO I think that the AMD 965 Black Edition C3 is the best AMD has to offer. Yes, it's a little old and only at 3.4ghz, but people can easily get it up to 4.0+ ghz with a good cooler. My cheap luiquid cooling can only go up to 3.8 ghz with a voltage tweak and northbridge tweak
