So funny… I can confirm this 100%! People who earn too much money tend to behave like retards at work and people who really believe in something are the best performers and really make a difference.

I spotted a nice article about the new Phenom II CPU by AMD and the Dragon platform (basically a combination of Phenom II CPU, 790GX mainboard & the ATI 4800 series graphics card):
I think I’m going to wait till Q1 with getting new hardware then. The Dragon platform looks really promising! I hope the prices for the new next generation AMD platform will look reasonable too.
Dragon is a 3GHz Phenom II, 790GX and an ATI 4800 series
Spider is a 2,6GHz Phenom, 790FX and ATI 3800 series
