My point was that the 950 is actually giving something. I'm no advocating the premium, its absolutely ridiculous. Be it the 950 or the $900 975. They are actually giving you something (higher/unlocked multipliers), where as the 965 is just a higher stock clock for those afraid of changing a single setting in bios.
I would have made the same comment if the companies were switched. I'm no 'intel fanboy'. I'm just sick of keith's fanboyism. Someone made a comment about the 965 not being worth the premium so he bashes the 950?
I recommend twice as many AMD processors than I do intel.
It's nice to see that pointing out the actual price of something is "bashing" it.
I guess pointing out that it doesn't have an unlocked multiplier would also be bashing it.
You have on many occasions proven you are definitely an Intel fanboy; you have again proven it in this thread. I'm tired of seeing people blinded by their unreasonable and irrational love for Intel. The i7-950 offers nothing more than a higher stock clock for a huge amount of additional money.
The additional $20.00 for the Ph 965 can easily be rationalized by anyone that might not want to mess with overclocking. The additional money for the i7-950 can't be so easily rationalized.
