tbh, i don't have a computer that can use it right now as i sold off my other one. I should be getting motherboard, processor this weekend, RAM next week so it'll be good. I'll be borrowing a video card from Alvino. So that'll be my setup for a while.

Thats correct the opteron goes through tougher testing to ensure it is a more stable, and solid processor. Because its meant for a server that needs to stay running, and dependable.

more info for you
