About 2/3 of the way through, the download freezes, can't get the whole issue.



This was a great build on a budget article. My request is to make a quick revisit to this article using all the same equiptment, but drop in the new Phenom II X6 1090T chip. This would increase the cost to about $850 but it would still seem to be a very cheap 6 core system. I think it would be intersting to look at the benefit of simple chip upgrades, or if you really wanted to let the chip run, you could upgrade the motherboard to one with the 890 FX chipset. Brings the cost up a little more but still in under $1000.   Jim Snyder
