I think I'll get the Phenom. I know that I'd probably turn the Athlon to be just as good as the Phenom if I overclocked it, but I don't want to take the risk of damaging the parts.

Also, you can always hook your ps3 up to your monitor if it supports hdmi or dvi. I personally have all 3 (pc, ps3 & 360) & find I spend a good amount of time on the ps3 lately due to the huge library of great exclusive games available only on the ps3.
It looks like the motherboard isn't going to be restocked anytime soon, is there any motherboard you guys recommend I get instead?
