LOL AT THIS RETARDS REVIEW FOR PHENOM
Pros: ok the q6600 its ok. i mean its intel but i got a core2 duo with 3g's of drr2 800mhz ram. and i have to oc my ram and core2 to keep up with my amd x2. but anyways FSB and ram mhz is where ya speed is. my core2 is oc 2 1333FSB, ram oc to 866mhz. and without my amd x2 oc its FSB runs at 1600mhz. really computers dont use all of the ghz on the processor so thats why they are dropping the ghz down on them. So in all from what i am reading and seeing. i think amd will come on top. now only if they can make a mobo for nvidia and not ati. nvidia is cheaper and top that on sum video cards ya can get lifetime warenty. i have still yet found a ati video card that will have that kind of warenty...
Cons: well just what i have right now. i need more then a 600watt power supply. becahse where i raid both of my sg300gb sata 2 hard drives and have a sound blaster sound card. with one sata dvdrw drive. i just wounder how much of watts it will take all togeter to run all the ram and stuff i have in my computer when i get this amd. dont wanna buy a $400.00 pawer supply...
Other Thoughts: hope i am right about this phenom processor
