I'm new here and kind of overwhelmed by this forum, but there is some good stuff too. Sooo ....
I'm thinking about the X2 as my next CPU. This thread I'd like to talk about them and if there is one already, I haven't found it- please post it. I found the following which I thought was really good considering they seemed to put it in the ring with everything else that's worthy-
Thoughts please. I'm thinking ASUS A8N- but I haven't cared about this stuff in a while. Good mobo / memory recommendations appreciated. I'm thinking 2GB mem min.
Also, I do game but I do more with RL number crunching and video editting- which is what is really pushing me to upgrade.
But if you want to use this thread to just talk these procs go for it- it's not just about what I want.
