    Frustrated by staring at the hourglass icon as soon as you try to work on more than three programs at once, especially when you’re working with digital media? Increase your performance by up to 80% with the AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 dual core processor. Work or play with multiple programs without any stalling or waiting. Dual-core technology is like having two processors, and two working together is better and faster than one working alone. Do more in less time with the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor.

    - Only AMD64 technology runs today’s 32-bit and tomorrow’s 64-bit software
    - AMD’s Enhanced Virus Protection for Microsoft ® Windows ® XP SP2*
    - Cool'n'Quiet™ technology for a quieter computer and lower power costs
    - HyperTransport™ technology and an integrated DDR memory controller for maximum performance and system efficiency
    - 2.6GHz operating speed
    - 1MB L2 cache

    I am just so happy that my FX57 is apparently still faster!

    I'm not liking OcUK. They force customers to pay for Next Day delivery and offer no alternatives to lower the costs of purchasing from them - ie 3-day delivery option.

    I would too, especially when it comes to gadgets and electronics. But like last week, I was looking at the Rumble Pad which costs around £17~ they're charging £8 +VAT for delivery.
