    Dilldozer?

    Yyyyyeah.

    Stay the hell away from Bulldozer. It's utterly awful.

    Get a phenom 955 and overclock it to 3.8GHZ. 'Tis what I've done, and it's fantastic for £90.

    It's fantastic for the price. He could also get a Phenom II X6 1055T and overclock it to ~3.4-3.8~GHz, which costs just a few more € , but it it has 6 cores which means it is more future proof :D

    Yep, and the cores can be overclocked Individually.. I have 4 of the 6 cores stable at 4.3GHz =D

    And as for the SLI issue, there was a driver issue with a LAN controller.. I guess it's a common issue with 64-bit Windows 7 and SLI

    You can over clock them individually?

    That's so cool!
