what does your cooling situation have to do with performance per dollar? I don't care who makes it.. AMD, INTEL, BLAH BLAH BLAH its all performance per dollar. I've owned everything in between and right now AMD is so cheap its almost stupid to pass up! I don't make this stuff up or go on what some mag says I view it with my own EYEBALLS. Did he even say 1 single thing about sound? nope didn't think so......you can make any system silent but im not addressing something that wasn't brought up.
I'm trying to save this person close to HALF his budget........ could you please let me?
