Really Good CPU deal

AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 San Diego 2.6Ghz (Socket 939)

$139


You have to enter promo code "AMDROCKS" to get the $50 discount. It's regularly $189.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103526


credit to "soybeanslave"
=======================

the FX-55 is a great proc ..... very good overclocking. Most people can get it to 3.0 Ghz with no special cooling.

An AMD computer processor. Fast one. Good price.

For those with the ability to build or upgrade their own systems.

picked this one up a month ago, you are gonna need a real good heat shink but it can be overclocked to 3.6 if you tweak the voltages,
I am running 3.0gig with no problems, the heat sink will cost about $50

That's a great price for a single core processor. Another nice thing about the FX series is that they are not multiplier locked. For those of you interested in overclocking, that means you can crank up the speed without overclocking the FSB.

For $180 you could get a Core 2 Duo 6300 which would pretty much kill every CPU out there except for higher end Core 2 Duo's of course. Those CPUs are also VERY overclockable and are putting themseleves in the same ballpark as the $900 EX6800 chip when overclocked right.

What are some of the latest real world applications or games that would take full advantage of this amount of processing power? I thought that the current hardware technology finally caught up and exceeded with what's required in today's software, no?

get amd if you want they used to be better for gaming and price but that is no longer the case Intel has closed the gap fast. I used to be an AMD guy myself but now i
won't buy anything except an Intel chip.

if you ever have to warranty a processor Intel will get you a replacement the next day, amd will take weeks

True. The hardcore PC gamer still has to pay those amounts (and higher) for the latest and greatest VC. I usually wait for those prices to come down until they become a middle-of-the-road VC.

Some other potential bottlenecks are the bus speed and the hard drive data transfer speed rates. As with processors, they keep raising the standard with the speed of these 2. I believe somewhere in the near future the hard disk will eventually be replaced by dedicated flash drives. Just my 2 cents.

that's why i've got a SLI setup now


you can get two middle of the road graphics cards for cheaper than a top of the line on.


alot of the new games are supporting SLI now
