Simple question really.

I am planning to build an AM2 and Conroe so as to finaly compare Intel and AMD side by side. So what are you going to do?

You are building both systems? How much is that costing?

Well the AM2 will cost about 1200$ But that includes SLI and Dual Moniters so I can just use one of the vid cars and one of the moniters on my conroe. Though I was planing to try ATI with my conroe PC so the end price is unknown. Keep in mind this is before the major price drop that is to come.

Me neither, though I am having trouble finding a good intel motherboard. I will post results when I get both systems built.

I am going to wait a while before I buy a new pc ( having a new one planned around mid 2007 ), so I can't really decided yet.

But if I'd were to buy a new pc soon i'd probably go for Conroe.

I hope to build a new Conroe PC in early 2007, to replace my old clunker (P3 @ 866). I'm hoping their base model (the E6300, I think) drops in price a bit and that I can overclock it.

~April 2007 when I replace thisPC ( AM64 3700+ @ FX57, 2GB, X1900XT 512MB, X-fi & Raptor) as i'm in no rush as this PC works perfectly :D But I won't definetly get conroe if AMD have something that rivals it.

I'm getting one just to get one 1st/2nd quarter of next year. It all depends on what kind of DX10 cards come out. To me, I refresh to keep up with the video Card market, not the proc market. Because the only two machines I care about, are my gaming machines. Everything else can and has worked well for what I do.

Actualy the 4x4 system that AMD is releasing soon will beat conroe by about 15%.
