    [quote user="SqUiD267"] Why? Programs don't fully have support for quad cores! At least that was the issue last time I checked. [/quote] Well you're right that's what they say. But, when I run Task Manager and watch the CPU loading across 4 cores 3 are used extensively while the 4th is used to a lesser extent. I guess my personal

    [quote user="LoneWolf3574"] Heh, my first PC 386SX16 that I bought used w/ just a 5.25" FDD & no HDD, I added a math coprocessor and 356Mb HDD later. I'm currently working on making myself an AMD Dragon system, a part here, a part there, as I can afford it. After reading this, I'm going to go with the Phenom II x4 955 AM3

    I hear you bro, but I remember what hardware used to cost when Inhell was the only game in town. I have 5 boxes, 4 of which are connected through a KVM and 4 port router. My 5th box is a 233 MHz PII that I keep around, heck I don't know why I keep it around. My first PC was an IBM PS/2 486 SX25 (yeah, that's 25 MHz) and it cost me $1500 with

    I know what you mean about X2 excitement. I'm just floored that 6 core CPU's are so close to being released. I just assumed that quad cores would be on top for a year or two longer.

    If AMD follows the same pattern for Istanbul they did last year with Shanghi then we can expect the first desktop versions to be released in August. Can you imagine having a dropin replacement for current AM2+ and AM3 platforms! Anybody up for some 6 core CPU awesomeness? Reminds me of what the sergent said in Alien 3. Arrr, absolutely badass!

    [quote user="Der Meister"] Dos and windows 3.1... That brings back memories... Remember when geames fit on a 3.5" floppy? Or it might take 3 of them? and that 12k modem that was fast. [/quote] I probably didn't play games until Win98 and don't forget the 5 1/4" floppies too.

    [quote user="Der Meister"] Very Cool read... I remember having a few of the oldies...lol [/quote] My first CPU was an Intel 486 SX25 in an old IBM PS/1 running Windoz 3.1 shell on DOS 5. Ahh, the good old days before there was an internet and the only things online were dial up BBS's. NOT! LOL
