Last year the i980x was the chip to get & i was told there wasnt going to be a faster chip..closed book end of story outro music kicks in...goodnight...

THEN i see this! click here

Well looks like there is a new baby in town & i intend to save up for one! ive got a quad extreme but its in need of renewing & this is what i would like & IF the price comes down i will have one...fingers crossed...

Just wait for the 8 core to come out!

wiz-king ive always spent lots on hardware i use my pc/s for gamin everyday & i like to push the multi taking on them, i dual core would just not do, & my quad is getting old now, ive got some spare well earned cash..so if you want the best & can afford it "Why not"...as for the 8 core i remember when Quad's first came out & they was software issues, so for now or the next couple of years a quad Extreme is the number...good point though..

Just to make you jealous I've just ordered a server with 4 x 12-core chips, 256gb RAM and 14 x 256gb SSD drives.

God alone knows how much it'll cost, but I'm not paying the bill...

The only trouble with having a Quantum computer that really works is that as soon as you switch it on it decides it doesn't want to be in that place and goes some where else.

Yes but saves a lot of space as it isn't really there until you look at it.
