My System Specs

Default

I'll keep my fingers crossed, but I'm not going to hold my breath this time around.

As it stands, what I need is a proc that works well on all "cores" @ 100% performance for folding, not something that can do 20 things at once @ 20% performance.

Yes, intel hasn't blown us away with improvements, but they also haven't (to my knowledge) released an entirely new platform which is outperformed in many ways by it's own 2+ yr old tech. AMD needs to prove it can consistantly improve upon my heavy load 1090t performance by a substantial amount before I'll even consider it for my main rig.......

That said, my 250 X2 is looking to be upgraded and a sub $200 4.5 "real" core BD might fit the bill. (They're still slightly above $200).
