lol.... but is the pricing fair? I might be selling in the very-near future.

Also, what about the Dell 2407?

You're accuse me of posting OT crap in your thread, eh Mr. Blackpot?

Yeah - $900 makes sense if you were selling on ebay. Might have to go a bit lower to sell it on a forum, though. Your only hope of selling it on a forum is as a whole, so $800 might be the most you can ask for. You would have to part out if you wanted to sell on ebay and it would be way more hassle with multiple buyers, multiple Paypal transactions, multiple boxes for shipping, all that fun stuff - but you could probably get your $900 that way.

I guess that explains why my machine has still free CPU cycles while transcoding video. I think Handbrake is not scaling well beyond 8 cores, but probably 95% of the people don't have more than 8 cores so is not apparent in testing.

HT provides the greatest benefit for poorly-coded SMP processes.

For example, my 24 core 8439SE box at 2.8GHz outperforms my 24-thread E5649 box at 4.0GHz in FAH, but the SR-2 handily wins in Handbrake because that software is not as well coded for SMP saturation. A perfectly-executed SMP process should show zero difference between HT-on vs. HT-off while using 100% of all available cores.
what i was saying was that cores will beat logical threads any time of day..

is that what you are saying?
