My brother recently gifted me a desktop with AMD's bulldozer processor. I was amazed to see its speed. I think that this processor definitely beats all intel core i7 processor!!

Configuration of my desktop

Processor: AMD bulldozer-FX8150 ($245)
Ram: 6GB DDR 3 ($85)
HDD: 1TB ($60)
Motherboard : ASUS' Crosshair V Formula AM3+ ($250)
Graphics: XFX HD Radeon 6870 ($200)
Power supply: Gigabyte 600W ($40)
My experience

The games run totally smooth. I played Modern warfare 3 and battlefield 3 and they both run absolutely smooth just like in a PS3 and Xbox 360 and loading time is less than 15 seconds!!. I think that the graphics look even more realistic than my PS3.
Multitasking is very smooth and fast even when the game is running (I meant that the game is minimized). I think that it will be able play 4 blue ray movies at a time without any problem.
Major Advantages

My desktop came with the AMD-FX8150 procssor. It consists of 8 core and each core has a clock speed of 4.2 Ghz (max). It has a total of 16MB cache memory. It consumes 125 Watt (max) of power. This is probably one of the fastest microprocessor in the world and costs at an affordable price of $245 !!

Another great advantage for gamers: It is the world's first microprocessor which is certified for cooling with liquid cooling system provided by AMD which will costs $100 once available and does not need to be refilled with liquids. This will increase the processor performance about 20%!!
Disadvantages

The performance of this processor is weak on low resolution games compared to Intel's sandy bridge processors.
buying guide

If you are a hardcore gamer than this processor is definitely going to impress you. If you are already running a AMD processor than this processor could be an inexpensive but effective upgrade as many of these motherboard has AM3+ sockets.
In my opinion this processor is definitely worth it's price.

If you are willing to buy a computer just for e-mailing, chatting, working on spreadsheets and entertainment then think twice about buying this computer as you can buy a very cheap PC that will suit your needs.

There's no beating the feeling of satisfaction from building your own system, but ... more

sometimes a little help along the way is very
welcome. Not only that, but unless you have a wide
array of test kit, diagnosing hardware failures
when occasionally they do occur, can be very
difficult. So as a welcome addition we are now
offering a selection of processor, motherboard and
memory kits that are pre-assembled and tested. No
more worrying if the processor is the right way
round or whether there is too much thermal paste
on the cooler - simply unbox and install into your
existing (or nice and shiny new) case and away you
go! An ideal way to quickly upgrade your existing
PC, and a great starting point for a new self
build. These bundles are all based around our most
popular core products to provide excellent value
and quality, with a wide choice of processors.
