Default Re: amd phenom bench

i thought that AMD would do worse, but looking at this, once i get my new comp, the reason why i have to go with intel first is im getting the C2Q 2.4 vista home pre. and a mobo for 240 bucks, i cant go wrong with that, but i will be building a AMD phenom after xmas, i just have always liked AMD, but never
have built a comp with a AMD proc, mainly because all my computer have been bought at a low price and upgraded, the one in my sig, started out at a 250 dollar comp, all it had was 40 gig HDD, 1.8 celeron proc, 256MB or RAM, it was shitty, but now its decent, and i have only put like 60 bucks into it, the Video card i got with bestbuy bucks, the proc my friend dan gave me, and the extra ram i got from my work and it was a total of 50 dollars for the ram, and the new HDD i took out of a broken comp, and then i have a decent comp


So how much are these running for anyways???

Well the 9500 X2 is $240 and at 2.2 Ghz but only 3600Mhz HT speed.
The ones coming out next year should be full 4000Mhz HT speed.

Cheaper than Intel is what I'm happy for though.
Its already out on Newegg:

I've always liked AMD mainly because they're the underdogs, and I'm sorry but AMD are just simply cooler than Intel. I got a C2Q because I considered it very good value for a 4core and the Phenoms weren't out then. I wish we were back in the good old days when it was Intel who were getting their asses whooped.

I still think I made the right choice with the guys on CF's help in getting the C2Q Q6600, I'm very happy with my overclock as well. 3.35GHz so far! That's with a 1660MHz FSB

Undergod, whoever was winning before, etc. none of that matters to me. I want what performs better, regardless of who makes it.

i want best bang for buck, thats why i dont like intel, they charge an arm and a leg for a C2D back in the day, and if you didnt OC AMD's were actually a bit better than the E6600 at stock, but OCing is my middle name, but the price was just too high.
