    The moment you decide to make a machine a dedicated cruncher, when the only reason for it to exist is for crunching, you have turned the corner and gone to the point of no return.

    This can sneak up on you too. You could build a new rig, then decide to keep the old one around, "just for a while" to crunch.

    Pretty soon you evaluate hardware on it's crunching potential, and forget about gaming, etc. You have become a farmer at that point.:eek:

    Most also have pretty wicked "daily drivers" but when you have farm rigs the equal of it in CPU and Mobo, you have arrived....;)

    That new AM3 955 does kick a lot of ass! Of course i do like Chicken_Patty's i7 as well.. I'm still waiting to pull the trigger on either.. Waiting for prices to drop.. If I had to buy one right now.. I would go with the i7 920.. It's only $30 more than the 955, and the x58 has crossfire and SLI... Plus triple channel memory...

    Don't get me wrong I'm a big AMD fan! (I want my stock to go up! :laugh:) but i'm a big Intel fan too.. hehe

    I agree with your post. The thing with the i7 is i've had the best of both worlds so far. Not a 955, but I did have a Phenom II 940 already. THe i7 is just ridiculously fast in windows, the HT helps me so much that I can't believe it till this date. Crunching, gaming, browsing, tons of stuff open and the computer fails to slow down. Its a monster!

    there you go again, wtf :laugh:
