I've noticed at several sites, people have recommended Phenom chips. I've read nothing but mediocre things about these chips (relative to the performance of the Core2 architecture).

I do realize you can get them slightly cheaper (but not terribly much)... But everything I've seen practically says they completely missed with these.

I'm curious if anyone here has recommended them and why. No flaming plz :onfire:

i want one.

it was cheap.

it works.

but quads as a whole seem to be sort of useless.

many games run buggy with them, and you are forced to turn off some of the cpus when running the games

example: BF2 (can only run on 1 processor), CoD4(can only run on 2 processors)
Lieph (heal)/ Sapporo & Djur(Sham)/ Qute & Brail(SBs)/ Bulor (war)/ Blackroc (ska)/ Antigun & Antigunn (SMs)
Lieph (Warlock) / Vexi (Hunter)
