    It took a while to type..so if i think the red one looks cool..it DOES haha

    The lighter red does...where it looks dark its ugly..i guess it depends on the lighting..

    The yellow one is awesome though

    Whenever they start to come out...lol

    Both companies are confusing me.

    AMD is supposed to change the names of some of them...so we will have to ask what socket it is and stuff, because a 3400 will be 2.2Ghz and a 3200 Will be 2.2Ghz depending on the socket and stuff...and it just seems confusing..

    I have no clue whats going on with Intels 64bit chip lol
