My CPU is socket 754, and it performs better then my friend's P4 3.2GHz that has HT. I think something is up with your computer.. maybe the motherboard or something. AMD 64 is very good in other things. Benchmarks prove it. My games run very smoothly.. I have Far Cry maxed out and I get great frame rates. Maybe it is the graphics card... could be.. or could be the ram or motherboard...

It isn't a feat. It is totally possible. No problem. An FX5900 isn't an FX5200 (glares at you).

He wasn't questioning the performance. He was talking about how it feels. In fact he was talking about how top-notch the performance was in that it gave him undeniably better framerates at much better resolutions. Which is natural for anyone with an AMD64.
