Yea they will still get the RROD


thats just like saying "Because i spent 5000 dollars on my computer, it is not going to break" You can build a 500 dollar pc with reliable brands and it can last way longer than any other computer

This is the third or fourth time that microsoft has "fixed" the RROD.


Fat chance

I dont know... The AMD X4 940 3 GHz Black Edition can out clock the i7 I think... But the motherboard is a factor of it too and Intel is on top in the motherboard division.

I would go for it if I could afford it. As I said, it's $220 at micro center.
