yes ... 1 or 2 days ago it only had 3 pages. Now it has 6!

but i dont think 10% is much of a difference. If you are doing intense gaming or (whatever) i heard that i only makes a little idfference not much. (thats what i heard from my friends).

Well since I have taken the time to dredge through and read this post I will offer my two cents. Now without getting into who's right and who's wrong I will say this. Not even two weeks ago I built my first pc. Inside you will find an Opteron 165 running faster than a stock FX60, which was also my first overclock. Now, why did I decide to go with the 165? Because I don't have money falling out of my pockets and wanted the best bang for the buck. Well, I'm here to tell ya, that's the understatement of the year. Two weeks ago I was still learning how to build a computer. Now if I can manage to get it together and overclock this chip to match an fx60 I'm pretty sure anyone can with a little patience the help of these great people here. That is why I hang out here so much now because I feel like I owe it to this forum for all the help they gave me. That and I enjoy passing on the knowledge. If you got more money than you know what to do with buy an FX60. I would almost gaurentee you could leave voltages alone, change two settings in the bios, take all of five minutes, and be up and running at 4400+ speeds for over 100 dollars less. No one is saying the 4400+ isn't a good chip, I doubt that AZ's point. Were talking about saving money and potential here. If neither one of those are options you care about, get whatever your heart desires.
