About AMD supporting overclocking, they figure that the people who are going to be overclocking their CPUs to the danger zone prolly know what their doing, and if u OC right, there isnt much chance of frying ur CPU. They know that, and y not offer some advice? And again, it boosts them even higher with the computer savvy croud

AMD is aiming toward the OCers and gamers that want to spend alot of money on the good stuff.

When people say to me, I want FX-51/53/55/57 (I know some of those you can't get), I say, you know what go get the above processor in the link, the A64 3700+. Only $325 and one of the best budget overclocker.

that's only if you are semi-retarded, or just plain n00b...

i'm not surprised, AMD will ALWAYS pwn Intel in the face... why don't they just let it go... loosers

dude.. i dont care how expensive it is, i mean ****! if i was rich.. YES id have it.. ur just showin jealousy and hatrid when u complain that u wouldnt get it cuz u think its stupid to pay that, and "rich kid" only buys it, well hell yea! u know damn well if u were rich, ud have it.. and yea $1100 is ALLOOTT for a CPU.. thats what some people spend on the whole rig.. just like if u read reviews for the new 7800GTX, some people said they picked up 2 of em, thats $1200 JUST on GRAPHICS!!

i think its awesome that AMD released this BEAST, just to add more on the stack ontop of Intel.. 2.8GHz, that OCs really good.. sounds intense and great to me, ya know!

lol.. imagine- FX-57, 2x 7800GTX, and a couple of those Fujitsu 147GB 15,000RPM harddrives, 23" wide screen LCD, 2GB (1GBx2) 533MHz ram.. LoL! NuTz!
