Maximus Formula performs better... but it doesn't really matter.... its Striker's Successor

P5k is better value...

"Value" is irrelavent when it comes to performance. You all suspect Price vs. Performance should follow a linear curve, but it doesn't. For example, say slow performance costs a bit, Fast performance costs probably 80-90% over that, and super fast performance could cost twice as much as fast performance. See my point?

New pet peeve: People who think Priceerformance matters.

P5k because for the lesser price... it overclocks the same...

why do you people care about every little piece of hardware... when something new comes out... you shouldn't even act surprised when something new comes out... that outperforms an old part... thats the PC Hardware World
