Bad move. There are so many other viable options other than an FX-60 it isn't even funny. My lowely X2 3800+ is running at 2.7Ghz (Soon to be 2.8) and can kick the pants straight off of an FX-60.

Add to that the fact the Tiger Direct has a NEARLY COMPLETE system consisting of:

FX60
ATX Case
MSI RX480 Mobo
450W PSU

FOR $438

I am left wondering how well your friend researched his purchase.

Actually,

If you wanted to keep the 939 platform the FX60 would be the final and best upgrade for that system. The 60 will blow the doors off a 3800, specially when overclocked. ( Had mine at 3.5 stable) $300 is a good fair price for the best of the last socket.

:punk: :biggrin: yes I was, and that speed was on Ln2, but 3.2 is possible with a decent WC setup.
Switched to Intel for the hell of it, but I still like my old 60:thumb:

I don't think he will be running Ln2 just yet.....so I think 3.5Ghz is a bit unrealistic. :thumb:
