Re: My 2007 Socket AM2 Build

I have a big soft spot for the AM2/AM2+ platform, and for Athlon 64 X2 chips. One of my favorite machines I ever built had a 5200+ Windsor, but I also have a 5200+ Brisbane, which I believe your CPU is also a Brisbane. Those chips were such a bargain - even though Intel had "regained the throne" …
