    Man, b/t messing around with 2 of my rigs, and one of them being down completely, my numbers are going to suck for a few days.

    I love the smart phone but the quads will be more useful and last longer... so i think its best to buy the quads
    hope you get everything worked out...

    it would give me a nice output boost...maybe 2 quads and a better phone(not a smart phone :() that could be a good compromise don't you think?

    Yes. Even two Athlon II X4s should be about 3k combined, maybe closer to 3.5k if OCed :toast:

    trust me they will be overclocked. I'm thinking buy 1 Athlon II X4 first and see if it works in any of the other boards(i know it will work in 1 board for sure) that don't say its supported but supports other PII's if it works in them then buy a 2nd if not try to find 1or2 used PI. :toast:

    Instead of buying the Athlon II X4's.. Check out the new PII X4 805's for a few more bucks or even cheaper. There is a post on here @ fryies for 79 bucks.. That's a steal, I think other places have them for 105. They also have L3. :rockout:

    Both :D Go for 2 quads and the smartphone!

    I went from a HTC Wizard to Titan, then to a bare bones Moto C139 for 18 months, and just recently picked up my HTC Raphael (ATT Fuze/Diamond Pro). While smartphones are not necessary they really are convenient. If there was a WCG Client for it it be crunching all day at my desk at work :laugh: I hope 'smart phone' doesn't mean iPhone though :shadedshu

    What phone are you looking for?

    And to keep this on topic a little.. No Fry's location in your area for the Phenom II 805? Is the price in your budget?

    Looking at alot of the Palms and The nokia E63 ATM

    also not so much a smart phone but the Pantech slate C530 is also on my list. But leaning toward the Nokia E63 because of the wifi (could be VARY useful at school and when i'm at friends house or other places with wifi)

    I don't think there is any frys around me. The 805 will be in my budget next month(ATM don't have the $$$) but by that time they won't be on sale anyways...

    nice to have you join the cause. 4 of my rigs are being used to heat my room.(3 X2s + AXP=:D)

    Well if there is any sale at Fry's that you want to try and get in on, PM me and I will see what I can do. Frys is not too far a drive from my work.

    Newegg should have them by then bro... and maybe cheaper or around the same. :toast: but those 805 look nice.. it will hurt the athlon II x4 or hopefully drop them in price. :toast:

    It would be great if the egg had them for the same price.It would be even nicer if it made the athlon II go to around $80If that happened it would be great and i would sure hope all my board could accept them. If so i would have a quad in all 3 :laugh: :toast:
