New Processors

We've added quite a few processors to our line today! It isn't too suprising that both Intel and AMD would have significant releases at about the same time:


AMD Athlon 64 (939) FX60 2.6GHz

This superlative also applies to our multitasking benchmarks. If you intend to use either ATI or NVIDIA's multi GPU platform (Crossfire and SLI respectively), this processor is a great choice for the best-possible 3D gaming experience.

Intel Pentium D 9xx Dual-Core 2.8 - 3.4GHz

We're looking forward to working with both! It is especially nice to know that relief is on the way for the high end Pentium systems that are such a pain to keep cool running.
