    guwahhh I just went through it. I forgot I had not reflected the changes I made on the forum version. So there was a lot of stuff to update. Still need to re-write the introduction and conclusion. I Also need to add the DDR3 information Non-BE Thuban information, and update the CPU-NB section.

    By the way everybody, the 1075T is on Newegg now for $245.99. Fortunately for those with a few extra dollars, the 1090T is close on its heels at only $269.99!
    duh.. had a brain fart :P don't know why i didn't clue in on that sooner.

    Wow

    I was trying to upgrade in the near future and this little monster seems like a chip i could afford. I was thinking the i7 but your review has shed some light on a dark subject that i don't know much about. thanks

    From what it looks like they're going to break it with Bulldozer though, reportedly moving to AM3+. I will say their sockets last a heck of a lot longer than Intel's....and they only have one at a time, which Intel should pay attention to IMHO.

    No doubt...that stuff is confusing.

    Can't really be too mad at AMD...if the Dozer is the massive change it's cracked up to be then a new socket is probably a necessary evil.

    i dont quite understand why its needed though as you could just get a 1055t and bump it up a lil bit real easy!

    Easy to "bump it up a lil bit" IF the board can handle it. A lot of boards peak out around the 260 MHz mark leaving you at 3640 for the 1055T. A 1075T with the same board would hit 3900 MHz ...

    Hm that motherboard is pretty expensive, do you guys think 4ghz would be doable on a budget board (150$ish)?

    Most definitely! Check out the Biostar TA890FXE. $150 and just look through this thread at what it's capable of.

    *cough* ahem *cough*

    Or check out this review on the frontpage:
    http://www.overclockers.com/biostar-...rboard-review/

    The consensus is out though, that board is great for overclockers on a budget if the feature set meets your needs.

    A "budget board" at $150??? You must be used to Intel board pricing.

    For AMDs $150 is pushing high-end, <$200 will get you anything except the extreme boards, which are kind of a waste unless you're going with extreme cooling (below 0C) ...
