I can't remember the site I went to wait.. I'll get it (like I'm talking to someone) lol...
ok here's the pages for the 3800 benchmarks, it's in french but whatever, so check 'em both out.. you'll see the 3800 looses in very few things, and the things it does loose in are practically irrelevant.

well actually the game he is talking about (Far Cry) uses direct X 9, as are all the new games which are coming out.
I do agree that the X800 XT is a better card tho.

AMD. The Athlon 64FX 53 is the best processor in the world today.. and if the Pentium EE beats it by a little bit, its worth the $200 saved. And really, I think nVidia 6800 > Radeon X800.
You may even wanna go with Athlon 64 3700+ or 3800+(3700+ has 1mb L2 cache, 3800+ has the new 939-pin). They are also slightly cheaper than the FX-51.

And those WD Raptors, 2x SATA/10,000 RPM in your system would just flat-out own.

For a floppy drive.. they should be like $10 max.

$24 for 2 fans?? Complete rip unless they are like Tornados or something...
go www.nexfan.com, order yourself fans to fill up every slot in the case you're getting.

Speaking of case.. wheres the case? I don't see it on your post..

I think that its a nice start, but if your gonna be gaming, you need an AMD. I suggest the 3800+ its pretty good and almost at the same performance as the FX-51, for a slightly lower price.

And you need 2 tell us about your case so we can tell you about the cooling and stuff and oh yeah...

ATI > nVidia any day of the week

Ahh, you retards, by the time 64 bit apps come out (2-3 years) the 64 bit cpus of today will be out of date.

True, but worry about tomorrow tomorrow and today today.
The only reason that I back 64bit processors is because of the performance that you can get from that now, I truly dont care for 64bit apps at the moment

I have no idea what case to get 'cuz of all the measuring... and that I know nothing about cases besides how cool they can look - but if you guys/gals know some good ones you can go ahead and name 'em!
There's absolutely no way you can talk me out of this processor, it rips to shreds any AMD out there to-date.. Look at them numbers! And does that AMD even come with hyper-threading? Probably a dumb question, it should.
What would 2x 10,000 RPM HD's cost me? A freaking FORTUNE I'm sure. If any of ya can link me to a great one I'll definatly consider it, I would love to get a 10k RPM over a 7.2k one!
