No one ever said the war would be easy. Thats how war is, you have your good days and your bad days. Its good times like these that we should be thankful we are winning this war, for who knows what the future may hold. May god have mercy on all of us.

Granted they were rigs built by Intel but I saw Conroe running with my own two eyes and from what I saw, these are going to be some really impressive chips. Impressive indeed.

It sort of sounds like AMD has one heck of a fight in front of it this time around, but time will tell for sure...............
