For me i always loved AMD for the price per performance relation and after seeing what you did i am sure that BD will give me the same. Now that they support SLI again i am happy to be back. As you indicated chew- in games the BD is on par with the SB and that is all i want. The BD performs better than my I7 setup on most of the test .
Thanks Chew and others here for all your tests and feedback -helped making a good choice
