Default Is my processor outdated now lol?

Well I bought the amd 4800x2 Socket 939 a few months ago when the prices dropped by half. I was so excited when I got it but now it seems like its that great when you look at all these new AM2 processors? Is mine average? or like better then the average PC lol

I have the 4200+X2 in the am2 version and I couldn't be anymore happier.

It rocks dude!

If everyone says the Core2Duo's are faster then they must be lightening, mine does everything instant.

Yeah, it all depends on what works for you. I don't need all high end parts. Your proc will always be outdated within a year at the most.

I say a computer is fine for you if it does everything you want and it suits you. I'm still using a Pentium 4 630 running at 3.0GHZ and it does everything I want and I think it's decently fast. It's not as fast as yours or a core 2 or something dual core but for what I use it for it generally does a good job with no trouble.
