OP was expressing his happiness with his money, you decided to be butthurt and rip on his happiness and insist that you were right and his happiness has no place in the AMD SECTION of the forum.
I'll not be conversing with you further.
lol, that honestly isn't my intent. Though to be sure, i'll make it a point to start my posts in the AMD forum with "I'm glad you're happy but..." if I disagree with someone in the future
I think the funniest part of this whole thing is how much more some thread contributors care about what I say than the OP does... Maybe "care" isn't the right word, but certainly "bothered"
To my recollection, his OP is his only post in this thread. Clearly he is not bothered and his happiness not affected by what I have said (nor should it be) though some people for whatever reason, feel compelled to defend something that was never being attacked...
He also made it clear he was aware of the response he may get, and he was right.
Yes, that's why when I want to learn new tricks and tips for my 8120 I don't come here. I think the OP has learned that this is the wrong online community to try and share ideas with as there are few shreds of useful information to be garnered from the AMD section. Very few people contribute because of trolling from the Intel fanboys.
When I want to actually learn stuff to try on my 8120 I hit up Overclock.net AMD forums and Asus ROG forums. They have actual threads where they discuss bios settings, how stuff works, how changing this setting affects your processor, etc. Trying to read the [H]ardforum AMD section is like trying to read a play by play from kindergartners with all the trolling.
Just my opinion of course.
He made it absolutely clear that he knew he was downgrading, he made it pretty clear that he was getting a great value on a CPU, he made it clear that he needed a new system, and he made it clear that he was partial to AMD and that he wanted to play with a Bulldozer system. And that he wanted to share his experiences.
Your medicine analogy doesn't make any sense in this regard. It's more like:
Having an RC car, and then giving it to a family member to play with because you wanted to try out a different RC car, even though you know it's inferior, but you just wanted to try something different. True, he could have kept the i5 and gave the FX to his father, but he wouldn't have the satisfaction of playing with an FX system and satisfying his curiosity, and getting pretty much the same user experience in the end.
I read the first two pages of this thread.
I wish RamonGTP would go play it traffic, his Intel fanboyism is annoying as fuck.
