I want to see some reviews of these things using hybrid crossfire. I'm thinking it would make a good, cheap computer. But 3400's are pretty weak to begin with, so 50% of that isn't much. I dunno, it seems kinda cool, but useless at the same time.

to bad they put DVI instead of a HDMI in the back
kinda pointless :(

HDMI is more logical and they should included a HDMI to DVI cable for those with DVI displays ^^

I guarantee that it sells with a DVI to HDMI adaptor in the box. Also, it would've been nice to have lost the PCI-E x1 lane in favour of another PCI-E x16 for crossfire in a small case :slap:

once u know the tricks to overclocking the k10 its not as bad as early reviews showed, its no c2d/c2q but its not neerly as bad as orignaly reported.

personaly one of these and a 5000+BE would make a good base for a decent mini system, cheap and when the better tri and quad cores come out u could choose to grab one if you think u need it!!!
