With a good PCI express mobo with socket 939 you'll be set for 5+ years with upgradability.

Wish i woulda waited 6 months

But my computer does own

thats what i am waiting for: a socket 939 mobo with pci express. coz i want my system to be awesome. I always have been an AMD fan, with the way they are going, that doesnt look likely to change.

what P4 can beat a 939 in benchmarking??? Im not sayin that like a smart @$$ or anything I just dont know.

Does anyone have a guess of what the price range would be on a good PCI-Express mobo when they come out???

i bet a 3.4EE would beat a 3500+ and would probably tie a 3800+ and FX-53

but then again....the 3.4EE is 1000 dollars and the 3500+ is 500 and the 3800 is like 700

AMD reigns supreme

i think i've seen places where the 3.4EE takes it in stock form but it definitely wins when overclocks because the 64's don't really overclock well

Found it: the 3.2 EE beats it as well
