Default AMD 4000 Clawhammer Ordered

This last week has been great money wise. I got my tax returns, then a fat paycheck with OT. Just last night i got money a friend owed me.

I was going to get a G220F 21inch Viewsonic monitor. Witch is around 460$ with shipping. I decided to drop the good monitor. Then get a moderate monitor. This other monitor im getting is
209$, witch saves me alot. So with the extra money i got, and with the money i saved from the monitor. I just ordered a AMD 4000. I dont even understand how everything worket out so great. With all this extra money. I guess working full time pays off, while being young. Less bills.

Either way im broke again lol. But i got my new processor. Im selling my 3500 Newcastle. I posted this in the Sell/Trade forum. So for more info go there. PM, for questions. I dont know if anyone believes me, but i really did order it. I'll have pictures of my system and everything. Around 2 weeks i'll have OC benchmarks too!

From the little I know about you, I'm not lead to believe you'd lie about it...although I think myself I would have gone with the FX series, but being the next closest FX is a good $140 above that 4000+ I can see the reasons for not going there

Yeah, i was thinking the FX-53, but i honestly couldent pull that extra money. First i was thinking the 3800. But i wanted something with dual channel memory and 1MB L2 cache. So then i decide to get the 4000, but a way cheaper monitor. I sure wouldent lie about it. Im going to put my 3500 on ebay soon. I'll give the link sometime.

ZipZoom just e mailed me. Saying i have to call for fraud and security reasons. Since i ordered alot from them the past 3 days. I really need the hardware this weekend too. I hope they wont give me to much trouble.

AMD 4000? Is that a new type of processor that I don't know about? Obviously, duh.
Yea, my parents ususally have these really good things happen to them and they get some extra money. It was great when they bought their first house, and they recieved a check from the government for like $1000 just for buying the house! That' sweet!
