    Decent processor for gaming

    If it's a Core 2 Duo, and under $100, get it. The C2D was a HUGE improvement over the P4. My friends still runs C2D's in his 5 gaming rigs (guest computers).

    OCZ PSUs

    I've had 3 OCZ Gold PSU's and they have all sucked. For whatever reason, they work for about a week, then just stop functioning. PSU tester shows no issues, but they won't power any computer. Swapping out to a spare CoolerMaster psu proved the issue to be the OCZ psu's not the comptuers...

    If AMD makes a competitive CPU to start with, then the ability to overclock will be significant.

    How will the bulldozer be better then the i7?

    Hexacore i7 970 hits retail... in UK

    I just don't get it I suppose. Why would they market this chip as a consumer (not enthusiast) chip, and sell it at $900. Intel is being extremely greedy in this latest offering, and that irks me.
