1. I would have to buy a new motherboard from newegg.com of course because my old motherboard is socket 939. Of course I would then overclock it in my custom water cooled system! Then I would have to upgrade the wife's computer with my old stuff. Love AMD!

I would finally get a upgrade from the +3000 that I currently have in my main machine. I need to get that server back up ;)

If I won the AMD 5000+ Black edition, I wold stop buying parts for a new Intel system and By an AM2 motherboard with Crossfire, so I could purchase two new ATI 3800 series video cards.

Now that's a system!! :cool:

What would I do with it? Have a starting point in building a system that stood a chance to play Crysis! :eek::D

The new processer is called the Phenom!

1) Let's be honest, I would sell the processor to make some money to pay for college! Sorry it may not be what the [H]'ers wanna hear.
2) AMD Phenom!

1. What would you do if you won an AMD Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition CPU?
I would build one heck of a gaming system for myself and fold for the [H] with the off-cycles! :)
2. What is the name of the new AMD next-generation desktop processor?
Phenom is the overall processor line codename, Kuma is the dual-core (Phenom X2) version and Agena FX (Phenom FX) is the quad-core.

1. I'd get to work regaining the aircooled X2 record, my 5600+ had the flag for a while, but others have surpassed me. The Brisbane has finally arrived on the maximum speed scene and the Black Edition 5000+ G2 revision is the best of the best in an AM2 socket.

2. Phenom X4 and Phenom X2.

1. I'd Frame it and place above my monitor to remind me to save $$ to build a brand new system around it. then when that's done, give my old system to my mother so she can check her e-mail at blinding speeds.

1) I'd build a new system around it, since I'd have a use for the 6gb of DDR2 I have lying around! Then I would both "pwn teh nubs" as the kids say, and use my new speedy system to do some killer word processing for school!

1) I would raise a Newegg.com and Hardocp.com flag on the flagpole outside of my home. For the holidays, I would give newegg/hardocp t-shirts away! I then would proceed to tell every neighbor, friend, co-worker, family member, random stranger on the street just how great Newegg.com and Hardocp.com truly is!

1. Build a High Def HTPC using an AMD motherboard chipset, one of those smoking new HD 3850 cards with HDMI and plenty of juice for Large-Screen gaming :D
2. Phenom/PhenomFX is the short answer, let me know if you want more :)

Ooooo....this one is easy.

1. I'd go back to my previous life as an AMD fanboy. I always felt a little slutty the way I implemented my "bi-curiousness" with Intel.

2. Phenom.....FTW!

1) Swap it out with the CPU in my VMWare server (x2 4800) and put the cpu from that box in my kid's PC (currently an A64 3700+) to give them some dual core love.

1.) I would create world peace and end hunger. I'd develop a unified healtcare plan that would provide more than adequate coverage for everyone.

Then, after I save the world, I'll build my sister a computer as a Christmas present for when she comes back from Iraq.

2.) El Phenom Diablo (aka Phenom) :cool:

1. Cover the processor with warm maple syrup. Rub it all over my face. Fall asleep in the warm sticky AMD goodness.
