    with the release of the BD I hope for a processor upgrade soon but not to bulldozer but from 965be to 1100t.

    my guess is AMD will do what it has done forever when in trouble....slash prices. :cool:

    So im hoping to see the new thubans hit $150 range and used thubans to hit $100 range...perfect!

    it is a very competent chip, performs nearly as well as bulldozer and will just drop in my existing mobo so it's a win for me.

    in reality tho the 965 be is quite capable and has given me no problems but to score better tech for pennies is too much of a temptation.

    also wanted to add that while bd currently seems fail for desktops; from what i have seen the chip seems very happy in a business environment and can be scored for next to nothing.

    if AMD is lucky and markets it right; i think they can get some "business" from small businesses.
