Was in SM Cyberzone MegaMall yesterday after a meeting, did the rounds and was looking for a desktop processor for my next gaming rig (specifically, the 1st generation Intel Core i7 960) but could not find any store that still carries them (they were all pushing for the Sandy Bridge Core i7 2600).
So today, I’m hoping I could find that CPU and be able to complete my hodge-podge of a gaming rig (still have a couple of LGA 1366 ROG motherboards Asus gave me a year or two ago, plus the video card from Inno3D I won in a raffle and Gainward gave me a kick-ass top of the line GPU several months back, the HDDs that Western Digital gave me last year and the Cooler Master CPU case I bought just for kicks). So all I need is a fairly new processor and two 4GB sticks of RAM.
This is in anticipation of Diablo 3, which should be out anytime soon.
Anyway, I was thinking that if I still cannot find that Core i7-960, then I should have a back-up processor. The most likely candidate is the AMD FX6100 3.3GHz 6-core processor.
Anyway, I thought of asking my readers what desktop processor they are using now. It’s been a while since we did a poll here at YugaTech.
Do chime in via the comments section and tell me what desktop CPU you are using right now and what do you use it for?
