My System Specs

Default

This won't come close to the performance of the 6 core intel but it will be more than half the cost. AMD is helping to push more cores for the masses while with intel only the super rich or the insane can afford 6 core CPUs(atleast for now). AMDs highest end quad core is priced in Intels low end dual cores. I bet AMD is going to price their 6 core CPUs where intel prices their quad core CPUs.

Not to mention you can put this CPU in a very old motherboard.

I think it would be awesome to build a 6 core 8GB dual SSD in raid 0 with the highest powered 1 slot low profile GPU on a mini ITX motherboard in a tiny case. Add a slim blueray drive too :p. Most expensive yet most powerful tiny computer.
