Well they need to do something. That i7 is bad ass.

My logic is simple. As I'm a simple minded person. When the FX was first introduced nothing Intel had could touch it. Now we have the "Black Edition" that has yet to live up to the FX name. I'm old fashion and superstitious. When they finnaly come out with a CPU worthy of the FX name I hope we don't get another 4 door Charger. Now you get me?

The AMD Chuck Norris. Unlocked multiplier of awesomeness.
i7 is fast/powerfull/hot but its also expencive to build a decent i7 system, where as you can build a damn nice phenom2 system for a good price be it with ddr2 or ddr3 now, the money you save going amd on board+cpu can go to getting a better videocard, or a couple nice cards for crossfire :)

i7 still isnt worth the green it costs IMHO, and the fact that you will soon have i7's in 2 diffrent sockets......just makes things that much more confusing for the consumer......

how much you wana bet you see people giving chips/boards bad reviews on newegg because they got the wrong cpu+board? its already happening with am2/am2+ cpu's and am3 boards, people are DUMB and will blame the board maker or chip maker for their not reading properly.....

blah, I know im going phenomII not i7 or i5 or i3, even if i cant get an "fx" chip, I would be happy with a chip i can clock nicely that will let me do what I do at a reasonable speed(gaming, encoding, movies)

Not so true anymore. They are about neck and neck now.

i7 still isnt worth the green it costs IMHO, and the fact that you will soon have i7's in 2 diffrent sockets......just makes things that much more confusing for the consumer......
Then AMDs current offerings are crap if you think that of the i7. Again the prices are far closer than they used to be.

blah, I know im going phenomII not i7 or i5 or i3, even if i cant get an "fx" chip, I would be happy with a chip i can clock nicely that will let me do what I do at a reasonable speed(gaming, encoding, movies)
My stocks will thank you. :toast:

a truely "decent" i7 rig will cost you more then grabbing a phenom2 rig, I could add it up but, meh no real need.

I am still happy with my current cpu, but am looking at upgrading my system fairly soon because i have a chance to do it very cheap :)

there's a been a few threads about i7 vs PhII price difference, if you pick the one of the best boards on newegg for the Phenom II build and 4gb ddr3 1600 ram; for i7 920/MSI x58/6gb DDR3 1600, the prices are only $50 dollar difference not much for a high end budget/build. However the cheapest and good quality phenom II build is definitely cheaper than the cheapest good quality i7 build. no point to argue, this has been proven many times over

Aye, and with that extra money you save, you spend it on a better video card. :D

im looking at
gigabyte 790x am3 board
8gb of ddr3(kickass overclockers stuff)
gtx260 or 4870 1gb(probbly the gtx260 now that i have badaboom and its so fast and encoding with cuda)

I could keep my 8800gts 512 and use it purly for cuda if i wanted.

I dont do MSI boards, nor asus boards for amd, the gigabyte board offers all the features i need/want(more really) and can unlock cores if you get a chip thats unlockable like the phenomII x2.

also looking at getting a 23-24.6" monitor as well :)

depends on how things work out, whatever way i go im sure i will have fun clocking it and playing with the new tech :D
