Not interested... No money and wel, only when something really interesting it out shall I switch!
Not for me. I'm not about to re-buy all my stuff yet again. I'm hopeing my rig can last a year or more as it is now. Maybe when its struggling to run games in a few years, I'll consider doing the upgrade. Which to me, means a new mobo, ram, proc and god knows what else. I can wait.
I'm going to be using Athlon 64 by july at the latest... gonna grab all computer parts at the same time and I want to see what ATi's next gen is looking like and what the FX57 is looking like before i make my decision.... possibly even wait for ATi's SLI
Using it for a while, right as it is now, I just see this as some big marketing scam, allthough it's pretty l33t to say that you have a 64bit system.
ive been using it since about july, so far i love my A64 3200+. beats the hell ouf of my old p3 667mghz. not to mention i got one hell of a deal on it, which makes me love it all the more.
I'm keeping my current rig for at least a year, maybe two if I can stretch it so I chose "not interested" as purchasing soon to me means a few weeks/months but not a year.
I have Intel 2.8C ghz and it's OC to 3.2 for now. My computer still working great for 2 years with 9700 pro lucky I didn't buy 3.2, it's a waste of money of you can easily OC 2.8 to 3.2.
Soon as OS 64-bit come out, will get 64-bit system(with intel or amd, depend which is better for me) include next gen video card
Been saving alots of money for the last two years, so good news for me :taste:
Also planning to get Toyota Tacoma soon
I've had mine since December. It's one mean folding machine
Not too much luck with any of 64 bit linux distros yet, although Mandrake 64 rc1 club edition does work pretty well. Tried the 64 bit Live Ubuntu yesterday, no sound with my Audigy2zs and alot of unknown hardware listed needless to say I'm not going to try to install it.
I am looking forward to the Vidalinux 1.2 due in June as a way to install Gentoo 64. I don't want to change my partitioning or dedicate a whole harddrive to linux just yet, and I'm not comfortable manually setting the harddrive peramaters. The Anaconda installer is just soo much simpler even though I'll wind up with a stage 3 install. I just hope I don't wind up with the dreaded kernel panic, Mandrake is the only distro I've tried that gets grub right every time.
got my 3500+ winnie around the end of january...seems like a popular time to upgrade
Made my move back in Febuary. A valentine's gift to myself.
Hey, it's allowed; I'm single!
went 64bit just after the processors came out, altho stays on xp32, for some reason ive had no luck installing XP-64, gonna have to have a play with it.
Sure, there is
On one of mirrors, look for:
Kubuntu has 64-bit version as well, named in similar fashion.
I think that the problem is that if you want to use aditional apps you will need 64-bit versions of most of them. Yet, I'm not sure what are the gains of using 64-bit OS.
i've had my AMD64 3000 since last march and will probably pick up XP64-bit a month or two after launch once people with more time on their hands than me have had chance to see what it's like.
Tried a version of it last year (RC1 i think) but had a few problems and no time to really play about with it.
And then maybe i FINALY get to see the 64-bit version of FarCry!
FC was the game i got last match to show of my new rig and the fact that i knew a 64bit version was coming was great news, a year later not so. :-(
and if I ever get around to installing the spare hd that's been sat there for 4 months i might try a 64bit linux install, just for giggles. (but again lack of time)
I'm happy with my AMD but I'll move to XP64 when there is actual support for it, 1/3 of the software I use and many games are incompatible so...
I'll probably wait for the next gen cards to come out and the AMD fx-57 and see what that's like. I'm hoping by the end of the summer i will have upgraded.
have amd 64fx 4000+ last year,waiting for 64 bit os to be released and surport for it
FX53 for me
most 32bit stuff should work just fine
i wanna get a 64 3500+. i can get them for $300 aus.
i have a amd64 3000, not overly impressed and a p4 equivalent can perform about as fast, however with the extended instructions these processors have some sort of "future proofing" As for programs being incompatible. Well 64 bit processors can still handle 32 bit instructions (i think intel's original itanium was purely 64 bit). The newer 64 bit versions from amd should be interesting.
I am not dissapointed, but man would i love an athlon fx
