OK, 240 is not the latest brand on the earth but why don't you test them as a web server (you wanted to do it a few weeks ago). I'm sure that a lot of people here wants to see a review of the capabilities of a 2way system that's affordable !!!

I said it before, ill say it again AMD sucks, if you want to wait around (with Tom Hanks of course) you will find yourself with proc's made in (of course) Malaysa. Besides you know AMDs run HOT and that intel is nice and cool and has a sLEET design. 64bit intel procs are going to crush AMD, I myself got to take a look at a demo. If AMD is not willing to pay any attention to people like Hardware Analysis then it just proves how bad they are going to do on the market.

Oh, if you really want to get the new AMD procs, ask that uptight Harris dude that drives a hummer and gets everything for free. :P

(AMD cant do 32bit what makes you think they can handle 64)

Hmmm well he does have a point, AMD is certainly starting to slip, and if they don't catch Intel soon, I may just have to build Intel gaming rig's from now on. Do compare the 3.2Ghz P4 to the AMD 3200+ on a A7N8X dlx though, and the scores will show AMD can't compete with same-priced, lower performance hardware. And what's up with them shipping older medels? hmmm... Hope they don't lose the market, Intel needs competition to keep low prices and invent creative technologies...

My rating of AMD (1-10): 6 (cuz my 2400 hasn't blown up yet, and for $30 1.3Ghz Durons :D)

AMD Athlon 3800+ X2
DFI SLI-DR NF4
Enermax NoiseTaker 600W
1GB Corsair 2225 1T DDR400
1x EVGA nVidia GeForce 6600GT (No SLI, yet.)
1x 80GB WD Caviar 8mb/7200rpm
Windows 2003 Standard Server

yeah okay take alook at my sig and say that again....Im using my trusty 2800+ t-bred "b". Im not using ln2 or anything of that sort either and this is a simple come home turn the key machine that operates at that performance on an everyday basis (not a one shot deal).
Just remember who started the misleading marketing routine.....sure the average goob thinks core frequency is everything but its the marketing that made him that way. Thus amd simply answers this with a pr rating which is actually quite accurate. Now the intel crew gets to tend with the new mac...haha. Price to performance amd is still ahead.
Quad pumped doesnt seem to truelly put out quad pumped performance either so here we are presented with yet another marketing scheme to confuse the consumer. I know it sounds like I side with AMD however I should add that I side with noone but simply try to make the best out of what I can afford. If i had the cash then you could bet that I would be taking one of those 3.2's to 4.2.

@Bawitdaba (or 1337w4nn4b3h4c|<3r?)

Please go and play with the other kids! Since when did your parents allow to use the pc?

Or buy the Madison or Deerfield and be happy with it. It won't make it to the mainstream desktops in the next years and K9 will come in 2005-2006. That will be a nice successor to the K8 (ok, not for you I suppose).
