Honestly, for most users RAM and PCI are not bottlenecks at this stage in the game.

What blew me away from AMD to Intel was the increase in SSD performance. Intel platforms are noticeably faster at booting from SSD's. THAT is what AMD needs to work on.

Back to the Super-FX in question. $795????? For 5Ghz on air? It would seriously be cheaper to custom watercool a regular 8350, in which case you could likely get it to 5+Ghz.

Or, better yet, a 3930K (or the equivalent IB-E, whenever that gets released) would await me as a viable alternative if I'm spending this kind of money.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
