oh absolutely, but this cant be a choice for ppl who r tight in budget.
for example, i am still planning on getting an FX-60 off ebay when i get the money n what i really want is to get one of those Phenom FXs. Of course, then im gonna have to upgrade to 790 chipset mobo, get 4GB of DDR2 800 SDRAM just to change CPUs, which is what i want. I want my mobo to still have juice left in it because all games take advantage of dual-core now a days.
another example, my friend has an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+, 7900 GTX, n 4x512GB DDR 400 n can run any game, his latest being CnC3, n runs any game at max setting everything perfectly fine. He has not upgraded his computer for 3 years straight.
i want to get the FX-60 n the HD 2900 XTX.
i just found out that i cant replace my 6600 LE because i dont have my reciept anymore, plus the business place i got it called iGamez lasted only a year n one guy i know who worked there doesnt even like me. Did an RMA on evga.com, got approved, n now i dont think i can send my 6600 LE in.
