Just think of all the things people do currently to reduce the amount of processing power required - offloading all sorts of things to the GPU, using simplistic physics, etc.
And now think that with reduced overheads and better multithreading, we can do all these extra things on the CPU we couldn't do before.

What I want is a Micro ATX AM3 board which doesn't use a shitty AMD760G chipset from 2007 or whenever it came out. Asrock make one, but it's not available here and it doesn't have a TOSLINK or Coax SPDIF output which I sort of need too.

Got my mate to build his first PC around one of those.

Goddammit, I envy the the bastard. I've seen benches where they still shit all over the new AMDS.

I tried finding one for myself, and all I could find was one on Amazon for an insane price (like decent graphics card money).

I had one that i could boost the NB to 2600mhz on and it made a good 10-30 percent difference in some games. I miss my 1090T.

I ran a 1090T for about 4 years before getting a 5960X.
The 1090T went to a friend.

While they are slightly different, for this purpose they are close enough to be indistinguishable.
