    I edited my post to clarify what i meant by before then. I'm only 20, I was in first grade when I got that computer lmao. My furthest back experience with tinkering with other PC's was socket AM2, because after the eMachines I had a Phenom X4 9850 in an AM2+ mobo so he'd occasionally give me CPU's from the AM2 and AM2+ socket era to bench.

    AM2 was about the time that AMD started the downslide. Intel had released C2 by then. That was the turning point.
    Loved by thousands. Hated by millions.

    I honestly wish I could get my hand on some of those older CPUs just to see what was high end back then. I've tested numerous Core 2 Duos, one Core 2 Quad, a Phenom 2 955, 965, Athlon Triple Core, my 9850, the Celeron in my eMachines (actually how that thing died, heatsink was so damn clogged with dust the CPU overheated, it was also old), a Pentium D, and an FX 4350. Oh, and the GPUs were fun as well. Good times.

    You would want to try the 939 A64's then. They were AMD's top dog when they had Intel by the nuts.
    Very fun overclocking platform also.

    Windsor and Brisbane cores were behind Intel, but not as drastically as we see today. De lidded two Brisbane CPUs and a Windsor as well, and had a lot of fun overclocking those. Yeah they weren't quite as good as Intel, but it was alot closer than today with FX vs i-series. I skipped the 939 days, went from a Barton core to Windsor, then onwards.

    My old rig (FX 6350) doesn't have any noticeable disadvantages to my new build in 95% of what I do. The only times I noticed the FX build running "slow" was when I was lazy. 20 crapware programs starting at boot, 30 unused browser tabs open-in two different browsers, a bazillion junk files, etc.. Since that wasn't a common situation, and was easy to fix, I didn't really "need" a Skylake, certainly not a 6700k. But I wanted one, so there you have it. As behind the curve as the FX is at present I'd bet that 90% of home PC users would be satisfied with the performance of a 6 or 8 core FX for the next 3 years for what they do. Email, Facebook, and forum browsing just aren't that demanding. Honestly, how many cores does Reddit use?
