Hello Guys, I'm new here as a member but have been following techPowerUp! threads for some time now and I'm an AMD user and supporter for some years now. How else can we be hardware enthusiasts with limited resources and keep Intel on the ground. I don't currently own a Phenom but will upgrade soon when the AM3 CPU's come out. I don't plan on upgrading my MoBo or RAM because of backwards compatibility but hope for processor improvements that lower voltage and thermals. Happy New Year!
