    been gone for a while.

    Ive been out of the scene for a while, I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket. My case is 9 years old, my system is 4 years old. and I'm thinking about water cooling.

    With about $450 what should i do? I put this here because my real question is whats hot in the amd camp right now? Last time i built a system it was an opteron, So whats todays opteron? My current system is in the sig.


    Thanks for any direction or advice.

    To my limited knowledge and abilities that would be the PII X3 720BE!

    I'm jealous... could only get 2.67GHz out of my 170!!

    EDIT: would have loved to have gotten 3.67GHz out of that!! (thank you ud!!)
