yeah thats a nice case for sure. Although they have some newer models with better features for that price. Still you can mount a triple rad in the front of that thing. If it wasn't for needing the 10 expansion slots I would recomend the A-77B.

 

Think you got enough for this case

Try some third world countries with decent internet infrastructure such as... Pakistan. However, you'd have to give up alcohol and scantly clad women. Moving to a country solely for escaping persecution by the RIAA/MPAA...ummm...I wouldn't do it. :)

what about those Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders?

AMD sucks and know one can tell me that a 1.4 Ghz is even as good as a Intel PIV 1.8!!

Well AMD has fallen behind on the CPU race, yet they keep benefitting the consumers with lower prices than Intel, which causes them to lower their own prices.

Still, I get the feeling that AMD is one breakthrough away from catching up to Intel.

What's with the random AMD dissing?  I still feel that AMD has a better choice 75% of the time when you're budget is $169 or less.  Tom agrees as well with his latest gaming CPU recommendations.  If you got $200+ then Intel is nearly always the best, but most people don't spend that much.

He clearly posted here to start a flame war.  AMD is definately the best choice for a low budget.

They did recently release the first sub-$100 quad core, AMD Athlon II X4 620.

Review: http://techgage.com/article/amd_athlon_ii_x4_620_-_quad-core_at_99/

 

I see AMD as keeping the market competitive and offering great budget solutions, but I would love to see them create something that would knock the socks off Intel. People may have forgotten, but it was AMD who first announced a 1 Ghz processor.

I thought of a way to make this thread a bit longer:

Want to play a stupid game I just invented?  It's called "HotHardware on a...".

Post a pic or screenshot (640xwhatever max, so it stays readable) of HH from a different (to this thread) device/browser combination.  Anything goes:  Cell phones, netbooks, notebooks, PCs, consoles, handhelds, minicomputers, supercomputers, arcade machines, carputers...

Here's the first one:  From a PS3 running FireFox under Xubuntu 9.10 (beta) Linux.  And yes, the Flash adverts work, thanks to swfdec!

HotHardware under the Lynx browser.  (surprisingly easy to navigate)

Lynx comes in handy if you ever really duff-up your video drivers with bleeding edge alpha releases and need to download other versions from the command line.

It is very interesting to see these different browsers, but that Lynx browser reminds me more of a BIOS screen!

That's because it's a CLI app that you can run without ever starting a GUI.  :)

"Come on guys lets make the longest thread in the history of HH! As many pages as possible!"

 

BTW, I'm pretty sure we have fulfilled the OP's prime directive.

Lol, maybe we should start a new "longest thread challenge" and then we'll have something to beat.
