How do you guys think Bulldozer CPU's will fare against Sandy Bridge E. The i7 3960x looks like its gonna wreck everything.

@ about $1K it BETTER. Even the 3930k is like $580.
However Hopefully the lower cost for BD may help drive the IB prices down.
Myself with an I5-2500k, I see NO reason to blow money on either at this point.

I think the only thing you need in the future is a HD7970. Looks killer.

I myself need a whole new rig. But I can survive till 2012.

Well, IMO AMD has given away a hint of their performance with the pre-order pricing.

Time is what we need!

I personally am waiting it out for IB. Then I'll be good for another few years. :)
