Thats why its always best to do too things before buying hardware....read as many user reviews as possible, and wait till the drivers mature if you are looking at something like video cards.

......the FX-53, FX-55 and 3800+ will still own them

the Athlon 64 3200+ beats a P4 3.4
the Athlon 64 3000+ beats a P4 3.2

and that's not even in 64-bit

yeah im about to build a new system with a amd 60 3500+.. and ive read in this recent magazine review that with a tiny bit of overclocking it could match and even outperform anything intel is going to bring out in the next little while

My old system was a 900mhz duron w/ 266 ddr. I out-performed My friends system that had a 2.4 p4 northwood. Then again he couldnt program for ****, but the point has been made.
