I've been hearing that these cpus are damn fast and blow any speed Intel
out of the water.

Does anyone have one and what kind of frame rates do you get on the slow
mame games?

I don't think the FX processors are ever going to come down in price
significantly. They're aimed at the far-too-rich section of the market,
and thier price will stay the same as their performance increases.

IMO the performance increase isn't worth the price. Compared to a 64
4000 you're getting about a 10% performance increase for a 100% price
increase. For most (all?) people, buying a proccessor one or two steps
down from the very fastest, and upgrading twice as often, would make
much better sense.

Could ya lend me a few bucks? ;) 

I'm tentatively (sp?) planning the FX as my next step. I've just bought a
P4 Prescott in the last 6 months and have had the high temps problem from
day one. Although now I'm 99% sure it's my motherboards temp probe that's
screwed.

Not only do I have to save for several months BUT ALSO justify spending
more on the FX cpu than I did on my entire system.

I think in a year or so I'll go for a new system and see what AMD have out
then. If anything, the FX will be down to a reasonable price and my wife
won't kill me!
