Tom: Do a CPU Poll

I think Toms should do a poll to see what chip you run on your home computer. From the forum, sounds like a ton of AMD users, but those Intel freaks could just be hiding out. Maybe a GPU poll could follow it. Think it would be kind of interesting.

  4. Did you ever realize that Tom's is a little slanted towards AMD?!!! He did do a good review of the PIV and I am glad of that. I have respect for his work. Why isn't AMD getting hammered on the 760 DDR chipset? Hmmmm

    Just maybe that is why not very many Intel people here.

    By the way:

  23. fastest athlon classic made is a 1ghz chip.

    "Are you saying that I can dodge bullets?"
  24. Hehe poeple always ask that

    go in the overclocking forum and check it out, it's in there about 90 times.

    but the fastest classic chip was 1Ghz. (first GHz chip ever)
  25. Computadora uno:
    Tbird 700 (used to be oced to 800)

    3Com 10 megabit NIC (poopy one from Road Runner company)
    Creative Labs DXR-3 DVD decoder card

    *notes* The DVD drive was removed from computador dos and inserted into computadora uno so I could rip (I mean back up) DVDs on a faster machine. P3 system is about to get gutted and the mobo and processor is turning into a POS biatch mahine for corny server stuff, and the rest of the parts will greet a socket a mobo not yet decided and a duron 800 with either PC150 ram or 256 megs of generic POS.

    sowwy for long post but I had to tell some one
  26. Thats right, im an idiot. My friend has a 1Ghz classic athlon. Runs a wicked Counter-Strike server :)

  27. You, guy started it wrong, so every body is doing the same mistake: the question was about the CPU, not stinking hardware, stupid.

    Here it is: "I think Toms should do a poll <to see what chip> you run on your home computer"

    I am running Athlon 600Mhz classic for that matter.

    it is a mistake to be afraid to make one...
