the one with the x2 works, even swapping it directly into my system, even after updating the BIOS on motherboard so that it explicitly supports my cpu, still doesn't work and is going to have to be sent back.
If its the Phenom 920/940 then they are awesome, if its an tri-core than it's gonna be slugish. The new quads are awesome though, on par with the i7 and about £200 less expensive.

next time get intel :p
The i7 is barely quicker than the new AMD quads, not £200 quicker anyway.

Totally in futureshock here. 2000 is still the future to me. Freaks me out that I can have conversations with people with people who are younger than my NG account. Still can't fathom how I lived life with out internets and mobiles.
I don't feel like we are living in the future, but i'm afraid of what the future could bring. We've had what, 4 incidents where nuclear war could have broken out in just the past 50 years, god knows how humans are gonna survive for another 1000.
But still, lots of new tech to keep me busy :3.
