Re: Why are you part of the AMD Red Team? - WEEK 4

Few simple reasons >
~ Because i got what i paid for
~ Because i bought cpu @2013. and i still don't feel like i need any stronger in 2016.
~ Because i never had issues with redteam components
~ Because much OC potential for FX series
~ Because i can type more reasons all day
~ Because why not
~ Because i love red

~ Because roses are red and AMD too
~ Because i can play games on one screen and watch twitch on another screen w/o utilizing more then 65% of cpu
~ Because i wish developers optimise more games then right now for AMD to see their true potential

~ Because u can buy HD7950 and still play games in 2016. 1920x1080p with great FPS.
~ Because u invest in longer stages
~ Because overall in past years i used R9 280, R9 280x and now R9 290, and switching from first to last card costed me all around 30eur (35-40$) in 2-3years and i can switch to R9 390 easy for 20-25$ more and still get flawless fps. Thats only 50$ from R9 280 to R9 390 if u have patience.

~ Because i can't wait RX480.
~ Because i can't wait Zen.

~ Because being on a red side is a passion.

I've been Team Red Since I got my first semi custom PC and have had AMD cpu and gpu ever since. I've always been an underdog kind of and had to fight to try and get where I am in my life so far. AMD has fought to gain the ground it has and Nvidia is fighting them every bit of the way but as I am Horde and hate the alliance as well it's only fitting   No blue or green here no alliance and no nvidia for me. #AMD4Life

Re: Why are you part of the AMD Red Team? - WEEK 4

I've been with Team Red since the K6-2 days, and I am currently enjoying the low power consumption Athlon 5350 APU for my 24/7 rig (running off a 90 watt laptop power supply!), and the very capable R9 390 in the gaming rig.
