Default Re: Now is a good time to buy a FX 5800?

I'm sure you could call an FX5800 @ ultra speeds a "good performer"... or a "decent card for the money"...

I would avoid it, If for no other reason than the 128bit memory pipeline.
I didnt mind the leaf blower as much as some. It only activates when the 3d pipeline's are activated. by then your speakers should be louder than the
Superchar errr leaf blower
