NOOOOOO

for the price you could buy a core 2 that would slay that easily.

i hate the am2 5000+ probably the biggest rip off ive seen in a long *** time.

and why raid 1 why not do a raid 0 since your oging to be gaming?

Sometimes it's not about the specs though. I'd rather throw my money at AMD over intel anyday, Intel makes processors that go into almost ever kind of premade office computer out there, that's not a company I want making my processor. I think your rig looks fine, And you should have some awesome sound coming out of that thing too.

actually dell has started shipping their computers with amd processors.

and thats a retarded statement "i dont like intel so im not going to get a much better processor for almost the same price"

so you'd rather buy an fx62... than an e6600 or intel core 2 extreme????? it beats it in EVERY single test there is out there except memory bandwidth use or something like that...
