See the possible problem with that yet?
“Coupled with Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards launched late last week, AMD’s new Phenom processors and 790FX chipset fill out the company’s Spider enthusiast platform. As I’m sure you know by now, Spider hasn’t exactly received rave reviews. All is well on the graphics front; the Radeon HD 3800 series offers pretty compelling value considering current card pricing. However, Phenom is largely slower than its Core 2 rivals and hampered by a delay in the 2.4GHz part. The 790FX has issues, as well, held back by a dated south bridge and dodgy motherboard implementations.
Perhaps launching an enthusiast platform wasn’t such a good idea for AMD after all. In fact, the very idea of an enthusiast-centric platform is wrought with problems.”
