Re: 5850 or 5870?

If i had to choose between those two id go for the 5850, b/c thats the best bang for the buck (which is the whole point of AMD systems). If i could choose a card outside of that, id wait to see how fast/expensive Hemlock is.

Re: Why AMD processor Speed in Ghz Does not equal Intels?

yeah you explained it very well. Makes sense. So it can vary not only from manufacturer but also across different lines within 1 manufacturer. Interesting.

Re: Want to Sell Computer Parts. What are fair prices?

I saw a 1520 for $619 , but it had "scratch and dent" damage and an inferior video card (128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS). Will have to wait for more input from people.
