    I just found this thread. As soon as I was done reading the first post, I said, "He's gonna buy the AMD rig by the end of this thread."

    I should be the next freaking Nostradamus.

    Grats U2k. Your machine plays Jericho. Woot!

    If you tell him to do that, he'll go out and buy a Pentium 4.

    Why are people still posting in this thread? Its obvious this guy refuses to take any advice we give him, he'll just laugh in our faces and do whatever he can to piss us off! :shadedshu

    ROFL oh man, thats funny hahaha

    Actually i did listen to everyone, but i am not about to spend 150 on a used 2 weeks warrarty computer that is super dusty. Yea a pentium dual core might be faster, but spending 300 on a brand new amd system is cool with me. I am loving this computer :)

    Well it kinda depends on the game. My CPU is really pushing Jericho, and when the game goes up to 20frames it moves fast, maybe i am not use to it, but hey its fast. I just can't see myself playing Jericho at 50-60. Because at 20 or 27, the enemies, those creatures that explode on you, they are running faster now, and its hard to keep track of them haah, but at this speed, it sure is fun and i don't have to worry about the game slowing down anymore.

    On another note, i don't get 20-30frames in every game, most games i get up to 200, depending on what it is. But certain games feels different then others. Timeshift i have at 1024x768 all high settings with HDR and i get 20-35.

    EDIT: someone just closed this thread please.

    I am happy with my new computer, if you don't like it, keep playing with your Quad cores.

    I do have to ask, being that you will have this computer for the next 25-30 years, what difference does a year of warranty make? :banghead:

    As much as I hate these threads, the incredibly entertaining responses make up for it. Therefore, I'm thanking everyone who's making me laugh my ass off. Carry on!

    I remember playing Diablo on 5 - 10 frames, IT WAS AWESOME, took me 5 minutes to cast a scroll spell and 10 hours to finish the first quest :laugh: ....... ( I seriously did it though).

    We should donate 10 USD each to get U2k a 4650 1gb because I don't think there's any possible way to persuade him. >.<

    Why should we even bother wasting money on him? He'll just go out an buy a 3450 or something for twice its price...

    u2konline, you may say you listen to our advice, but most TPU members take it as an insult when that advice goes in one ear and out the other. :shadedshu
