I'm so tempted by this, it's driving me nuts but I know I should hold back for AM2.

I guess if you got that kind of money it would be great ,but I think I would go with a cheaper model and overclock since they seem to overclock so well,I know some people don't like to over clock,but IMO I would rather get a slower one and overclock it and have money left over to buy some good memory.

This thing is like 3x the cost of my 4200+ but is noowhere even close to 2x the performance.

Obviously the FX series is meant for teh big spenders. If you want the best of the best, forget bang/$.

You people are insane... seriously, its like a 5% performance increase in CPU limited cases (0% when you turn up graphics settings). How can you really spend over $1300 on one of these things? Especially with the way the lower models overclock.

You're all crazy :p

Riptide

Not crazy. Just a lot of money to burn.

It's obviously a horrible, horrible value for the money. But FX series chips have never been about bang/$. It's bleeding edge - those that HAVE to be getting the absolute highest performance available and are willing to pay the ridiculous premium will buy it.

Like I said... Been there, done that, never again. At least not w/CPUs. ;)

Heh, yeah. When I look at benchmarks and CPU comparisons I look at the 4000+ to compare mine becaues its running roughly the same speed (512k less cache but 100Mhz faster...) and considering that I only spent $150 on this thing like 7 months ago, its doing amazingly well. The speed difference from mine overclocked to an FX-60 (even overclocked) isnt that great, let alone worth the $1200.
But yeah, if I brought in thousands of dollars a week id probably buy one or two of these myself ;)

If the AM2 socket wasn't coming out next quarter (or so I have heard) then I would get one, give my wife my FX-57, and maybe sell or ebay her FX-55. Now that games and drivers are starting to take advantage of dual core CPU's, it's time for an upgrade. Now all I need is 2 512 cards and I'll be set.

If you got the money, why not? To some people $1,000 is like $10 to us. Would you spend $10 for an FX60? Hell yea, I know I would. If I made alot of money I know I would get one.

And plus, its not $1,300 if they sell their chip for a decent amount of money, it would be like half that.

Riptide

If I had the money to burn I would get it. Sure. Hell if I were rich I'd get every tiny little upgrade there ever is or was just to get an extra 2% in speed.
Like I said FX chips have never been about bang/buck. It's not a bargain item at all. And yeah it's not that much faster than a chip that costs half as much.

So jAkUp how long until you get one dude?

/looks at jAkUp's sig
