New to the forum here, but long time reader. You guys know your stuff here, so I ask you...

Does anyone know when AMD is going to release their new FX-55? Do you know when they will reduce the price on the FX-53? (Just looking for approx. month here, unless you know specifics). I am assuming the FX-55 will be faster than the 3800+, is this right? Sorry for all the questions, I am going to be building a gaming rig soon, but I want to wait for some pricing to drop first. Thanks in adv.

They won't reduce the Price of the FX-53, they'll replace it with the FX-55, and release a 4000+ with similar specs to the FX-53.

Any FX chip is a bit of a waste of cash if you ask me, but if you desperately want one, go ahead.

Oh, the FX-55 will be faster than the 3800+, but by nowhere near enough to justify the stupid price tag.

Have you considered overclocking? high performance at low cost... I just hate seeing people waste money on the stupidly high-end stuff :eek: ... but to each their own I guess.
