carl4286AM2 motherboards came out, and are available on newegg.com, today, not next month. The processors carry the same model names, clock speeds, and cache sizes, they just have new memory controllers. They're also releasing new energy efficient versions of their processors next month... for about a $50 price premium, you can get an Athlon64 X2 3800+ with a heat output of 35W (half of what a current single core 3800+ puts out). If you're into oveerclocking or a quiet computer, pick up one of those. About the rig you posted, It doesn't seem worth it to me. At stock speeds, you'll probably be neck and neck with your current rig, and with some heavy overclocking you'll just pull ahead by a hair. Bottom line... upgrade to AM2, an energy efficient AthlonX2, DDR2, and the upcoming 7950GTX when it comes out. Or better yet, one of their DX10 compatible cards when they come out.

Agreed. No offence though but a 2.6ghz P4 D is just crap, more than crap. A AMD 64 2800+ would out score that thing in a FPS. I know your talking about over clocking but esh its not worth overclocking. Save a little more money man and wait till June since it be June in what? 8 more days and pick up a AM2. If you really want to go intel then least wait for their new ones that are coming out.

RaasclotAnother Nvidia 'fanboy' ATI are on top! Its proven!

Another ATI 'Fanboy', I don't care. Look at my reasons for going nVidia. Most FPS games are designed around nVidia and I'm an FPS Gamer. Read before posting.
