    This is why we should all be hoping AMD has some success with piledriver. That is, unless you like paying more money just so you can feel smug about yourself.

    Sigh even though I have an i5-2500k my next system is going to be an AMD one, CPU prices need to have competition. I hate monopolies and this doesnt bode well.
