    and at 5.2 ghz it consumes more power then new york city.

    And gaming benchmarks do a good job representing real world performance. Notice i posted little to no synthetic testing.
    Even with the new win7 patch for it games only saw 1.7% increase in performance same with Windows 8 only saw about 2% increase in performance.

    I don't need to own a VIA cpu to know they suck compared to Intel and AMD.

    I play Battlefield 3 at 45 fps with my Athlon2 x3 processor.

    There was good idle consumption improvements in bulldozer because of the ability to shut off part of a module. I would not look for any super massive improvements from pile driver. AMD said we would see a 20% increase in Digital media workloads. They could slap on 2 more cores and get that without doing much bulldozer can encode well but my GPU still outpaces it. Converts 7zip fast but I do more then compress stuff.

    I have hardly heard anything about adobe air. But it basically lets you run a web app on a desktop kinda like java applets. You program for it with JavaScript HTML and flash look up tutorials for those.

    It its from 08 its not that far out of date when i learned C I used books from 01.

    Base* lol as in the motherboard, and a decent CPU.
    Also, how is AMD fx X6 a terrible CPU?



    Behold as the FX gets raped by a I3









    That is the 8 core variant and it is higher clocked and it is not even doing better then Intel. This is also with a good graphics card the one is an IGP in that build.

    More benchmarks










    Power consumption is also high.

    Has a terrible CPU.
    Also craptacular IGP not as bad as intel but still crap.
    Also lacks a Cd drive not a big deal but if you got slow internet.

    This crap should be illegal, just wow......

    Both of those seem better, but which one would be better? And to say, I'm not that much of a computer person.


    Well if I was buying I would get the asus as a brand I trust them more plus the stronger GPU in it would help more in most games I play.

    But the better CPU in the bottom one will help with games like minecraft and general web browsing the GPU in it should be enough for mine craft.

    I actually can expand the RAM to 8 GB. And it costs about 400.



    That would give you 0% performance increase.
    The cpu is holding you back plus 8 gigs does not help for gaming.


    Could you afford to buy this desktop it is good.

    OK cpu and good GPU for the price range

    Better cpu then top but worse GPU.

    your comp is crap, you need a Intel I5 2500k quad core, and a much better graphics carp like a ATI 6750 or a 6850 to run any games decently. An AMD duel core is bad at least get an Intel I3 duel core. Also a 6350 is better than nothing bu you want something better than that



    You do not need Intel I5 2500k for gaming if he is looking at a netbook CPU he probably is on a budget.

    An AMD lano can run the majority of games at lowest graphics.
    He just need a better version of the cpu.

    When people ask me what bother you on the internet.


    Really just fanbois of any kind with 0 proof, Ignoring all evidence otherwise that there point is incorrect. Not so much of an online thing as an all around thing.

    People who get confused by simple terms like Browser or operating system and don't google them.

    Virus paranoid people.

    People who assume I'm stupid because I'm from Kansas.
    People who think it is grown up to curse every other word.

    People who are grammar Nazis, I understand getting annoyed at huge spelling errors or stuff like that. But if you do it constantly in a game like a FPS or a RTS where people don't have time to spell check. I will hate you forever.

    Quote from jacobdb

    hence why a far more direct system of democracy is needed.



    Look how direct democracy has failed horribly in California it has become a tool for corporations to use even more then the federal government at this point.

    This should not even be aloud as something the feds can do we need more power to the states where it would be easier for the population to show hatred of it and people have more control. The federal government has grown too massive with bureaucratic bloat they need to let the states handle more.

    President Obama is an intelligent person he knows more about technology then 99% of congress. I highly doubt he would let this pass. The bill is unconstitutional the supreme court can also remove the bill even if it passes tho the supreme court seems to be maybe the most corrupt wing of the government corporations are people my butt.
