hmm, well, i dont mind spending the 1k on the cpu, if its guna be enuff for gaming for a while. i looked into the Opterons too, i may get one, but il have to look into it more. Im ordering the stuff this friday.

I realy wouldnt mind spending all 12grand i got on the comp, but, my parents think its compleetly unreasonable, as do most of you im sure.

EDIT: Also, whats a good ram to go with it? I have the OCZ on my build plans for now, but in that post, some1 told me to get better ram. I dont know much beyond the timings on ram, so i dont know how to judge how well it will over clock. And, neway, with the build on my post, its only 3000 bucks. The more i save tho, the more money i can spend on my other baby(300 mag. sooooo nice....

i know what im about to say could be considered a crime here, but think about spending only 2 grand and getting a car with the other 10 because 2 grand is still enough for a sweet computer thatll last at least 3 years

When will people learn that dual core doesn't mean you have 2 x 2.6ghz chips.
they'll probably learn that on the day up becomes down. last i checked the definition of a dual core at 2.6ghz is 2 cores at 2.6ghz, thats no surprise. don't argue because i know the specs. each core is a san diego core identical to that of the FX-57. therefore an FX-60 at 2.7ghz is equal to 2 FX-57 cores. and the FX-57 is 2.7ghz not 2.8ghz

But yea,, dual core means 2 individual cores on one die, they have there own cache also. so technically the fx57 out of the box is the best cpu for gaming... but buy an fx60 for a little bit more and OC it by 200 mhz and it gives you 2 of the best gaming cpus on the market.. yea yea a lot of people say that dual cores will never match single core. It is more future proof. I just hope that it wont be out of date by the time games are made to take advantage of 2 multi processors

but it still helps just in a less noticable way one of the cores handles all the background programs running and the other is solely dedicated to the game
