    I was checking out my local PC stores price list and saw that processor going for ten thousand Rand, that's close to $1000...Is it like a total beast, or what?

    It's a beast but not as much as the FX60: http://www.amdcompare.com/us-en/desk...=ADAFX60DAA6CD

    I don't consider them to be worth their premium price.

    You have to consider the 200mhz in gaming performance tho VB, cuz on more tests the fx-57 still outperforms the fx-60 because of the 200mhz difference. That just goes to show how very few or no games yet exploits the advantages of a dual-core CPU.

    Which only serves to show the inherent value of lower cost, high-scaling chips.
    My Opteron 148 hits 2.8 without even trying very hard.

    Holy shet.

    You should post your full specs+all mods (watercooling?) in your sig.

    Show us the l33tness.

    Hey clocker, Ive been checking out the opteron's lately, what's your suggestion for a budget one?

    As in, dont' want to spend too much, but still optimal performance (I do plan on overclocking, not by much though).

    Also, I'm totally new to watercooling, do you need a completely different Case or can you implement it to any case. Also, do different the new socket's not support it? Googling has shown me that 939 is nowhere on the list.

    I really want to get a new system set up for under 1200 dollars Canadian that has an opteron in it with water cooling (if that is outside the budget, then I can/will crank up the budget to 2000).

    edit: and no, I have yet to check the prices on opterons, will do right now.

    I bought mine used from the [H] forum classifieds.
    I much prefer this approach...not only is it cheaper but you know the stepping you're getting.

    Of course s939 is supported...every watercooling component manufacturer makes stuff for that platform.
    The case is up to you.
    Any case can be made to work but some cases are easier to work with than others. In general, I would avoid compartmented cases (Lian-li V series, Antec P180 for instance, although the Silverstone TJ07 might be an exception to this rule...) and go for the biggest, most wide open case you can get.
    My personal preference would be the CoolerMaster TC-101 Stacker (NOT any of the later variants though).

    All your watercooling equipment can be found used (we tend to burn through hardware pretty fast...always trying for a better result- so good stuff in good condition is pretty easy to find) and that can save you considerable money.
    The same goes for processors.
    My Opty 148 cost $200 (US) and works beautifully.
