sol.... dont feel down...
you have one piece of the i7 puzzle. thats more than 98% of TPUers man. you'll get the board and some ram. hell... the ram is cheap really. the gskills i have are $134 on newegg right now.
keep your chin up bud..... im looking forward to you getting yous going.
in all honesty... ask dark and kursah how hard i had to work to get all this stuff together by today. this has been a really stressful 2 weeks and it has all begun to pay off.
this is all so tempting, but to think I have to waste close to 1k again
Hey Solaris, be happy you're not in Argentina like me where they don't even know what a quad-core processor is
Just hang in there man. Things will work themselves out. And you better throw a few OC's in there for me
IDK 1,020 people have already looked at this thread
and VB sucks at couting....
I feel your pain bud. This thread tortures the hell out of me. It will likely be at least 4 months before I can even think about making the jump.
sol, we are with you bro
Me too. Just think though, the longer you wait it out, the more options you'll have with motherboards, not to mention some cheaper DDR2 prices.
But then the fun goes away!!!
I bought my 790i ASUS the day it came out along with the 790FX board.
BOTH I LOVE, and still love to this day.......There is always something new around the corner like Skulltrail... I have said I wanted to wait, but why should I is the real question.
I understand. I like being a relative early adopter, but I also like to have a fair amount of choices too. That's why I give it about 3-6 months before I'll move to i7. I did take a step in that direction though. I bought a killer set of ddr3 that will hopefully transition well to i7.
Which is also a good view point.
Like me with the 790FX I had a jacked up Quad.....but I oced the hell out of it and had fun.
If I would of waited a few months then all that would of been fixed.
The same with my 790i board. The dang os would get corrupted every week and force me to reinstall from the chipset tell my system to more or less kill itself. They did fix the problem months later, but by that point I was having a blast anyways.
anyone want to trade a TR TRUE for my TR IFX-14?
i'll throw in a HR-05 IFX/SLI for free
that 790FX was a hell of an oc'r
bah who wants some silly 140mm cooling apparatus, they really want to trade for my s1283 + cash
looks like I'll be joining the fray with the intel x58 board
i'd also sell it if anyone is interested.
I figured out how to OC AMD Quad core....It's harder, and most people still don't get it.
I have 30usd LOL
till this weekend.........
as did i i got 2.84ghz outta mine
i was shootin for $50 shipped.
I got 2.980 on the 9500 LOL
Just on water!!!!! Along with 4 sticks of DDR2 at around 1200 at what 3-3-3-10 or something like that. Which was very low timings for the speed of the day........
Good times, Good times.
90 new according to a quick Google check....let me think....Like I said tho I don't have it right now.
I like to take my system to other places on air for the most....it's just easier.
yours was a better chip mine kinda stunk only 2.84 on a 780G board as well was pushing the ram to 1100 or so not bad for promos
I think it was the G board, and which was also impressive at it's time.
This is crazy
i7core 920 at 4.1Ghz
O wait 4GPUs
