That deal rox... if you want a single core...

Looks like AMD is throwing out their old single cores,,, probably due to lack of interest resulting from bleeding money on production...

Ya, probaly. Newegg must be making nothing as well.

I like the deal, its just 939 though. Wish it was AM2. :(  :(

If somebody knows what they are doing (and the girls and boys at Stanford seem to) it is easy to use this CPU with the ATI X1800XT and higher graphics cards and build a 100 gigaflop computer using the GPU as an accelerator. That's about 2.5 times the fanciest core 2 but you have to have IMC to do it. http://folding.stanford.edu/FAQ-ATI.html

Well, the X18xx cards may be supported in the future, but with beta 5.05 rc1 works using the X19xx cards...

Yea my friend just got an FX on that deal, Wish I wouldve waited just a little longer, I got an 3800+ which performs not that far behind the FX. But since he won a C2d, he's giving me his FX55. So the extra 200MHz & 1MB of cache certainly couldnt hurt.

my friend just got one, and i was curious if you all know how far he can take that on air cooling, he has an Arctic Freezer 64 with AS5 (not the pro)! 3ghz n e one?!?

As with most of the FX CPU's, they dont have much room for OC'ing.
On air I'd say 2.8GHz Easy.

Damn I might actually consider this deal since I need a new storage drive but I could also get a very nice CPU :)

I dont see why any 939 user with a 3500+ or below wouldnt consider this deal. Specially with a free 250GB HDD. For people that dont do much multitasking and play their fair share of games, Its a nice deal.

Yea I got it to 2.84ghz!

The only thing that prevents me from buying it is its socket 939. Not AM2. :(  :( 

If it was, I would be the next to buy.

I ordered mine!! im so pumped cause im doing the upgrade from 3500 to fx-55 and im going to try and sell the hard drive to offset the already super low price. Will post back with some scores when i get it.

Omg... that'd be quite a step up from my 2.0gHz AMD 64 2800+...

Why the darn Newegg does not ship to europe... :cry:  :cry:  :cry: 
October 27, 2006 5:15:57 AM

i got this deal actually :D 

but i'm a tard and read the CPU Support list for my Epox 9NDA3+ wrong 8O


and it wouldn't work


so i got a refurb A8V from mwave for $30~ and it is quite nice...


although more work than the drop in CPU replacement i was hoping for :D 

but ya' know ..... did give me an excuse to dust out the ol' computer case.
October 27, 2006 6:52:10 AM

yeah thats pretty good, but single core is still single core even if its an fx. its still gonna get crushed by the cheapest core 2 and the core 2 is only gonna cost a bit more.

I so wish I could get in on this deal. Too bad for this poor little south african... :cry:
