I finally got around to upgrading my main machine so decided to get one of the new AMD 64 X2 4400+ processors, slot that into a groovy A8N32-SLI motherboard and attach a swish Arctic Cooling fan and heatsink with variable speed control (this allows the mb's AI-NOS to dynamically overclock the CPU and adjust the fans based on load). This new mb also includes some far better audio stuff (Realtek) so I've been able to connect my machine up with my home theatre system
I'm now all set to start experimenting with this new hardware.
I'm currently reading up on the specifics of the CPU and will attempt to compile a 64bit native Doomsday1.9.0-beta4 and see what the current issues are.
As you might know this processor has two cores allowing for true multithreading 64bit applications under this environment. So I'm particularly interested in messing with that stuff in 1.9.1
