This build cost me around $1000 with shipping.
If i were to buy this from dell it would cost $1799

Ok i think ive satisfied my need to brag.
On Crysis I get around 30fps on Max settings and around 45fps on high (dx10 or dx9, almost identical fps)

I sold my old computer to a fool :) who likes lots of led lights.
And I got around $400 for christmas.. so thats how i was able to build this monster.

Until i get a job this computer will hopefully hold me off cause i barely ever upgrade.. being that im 15 years old.

Ew, fanboys.. lol jk

Seriously who cares who makes the card.. all that matters is that mine will kick any AMD cards ass.
It's not a "card" it's a CPU/Processor. We're not talking about Video Cards here.
And I doubt that. I bet my X2 6000+ would compete with your Duo pretty evenly.
Also, oh yeah. AMD/nVidia is the shit.

lolz.. ive been looking at graphics cards to long.. deciding whether or not to pay a little bit more to sli two ati cards or just get the 8800gt.. I went with the 8800gt to save money on the motherboard and card.

X2 6000+ against the Q6600?
If the Q6600 is overclocked and used on a game that utilizes all 4 cores.. its unmatched.

These stats are when it ISNT overclocked

AMD And nVidia? Yeah, I did. AMD bought ATI, just because I like nVidia and hate ATI. That doesn't matter.
Also, fix the god dam quotes coz. This is so annoying

Im afraid AMD is going to go out of business soon..

Looking back at when P4's and Athlon's were competing.. Pentium 4 were still sold more because of advertising and Intel's "More Ghz, More Power" mentality. Some people just arent aware that you can only compare ghz of one processor to another processor of the same type. Now with multiple cores coming into play things get even more complex and with the recent domination of Intel's e6xxx series AMD is taking a hard hit. Their only hope was the Phenom processor which was a MAJOR disappointment.

AMD WAKE UP!! :cry:
