I know that most of you guys would just right away pick conroe, but let me explain my situation. I have a s939 rig right now, but with an agp card, so i wanted to get a new pci-E videocard and a new dual core processor, Since the processor i have now is an Athlon 64 3000. My question is how much better is the Conroe over the opteron, I am probaly going to buy a DFI Lanparty
to go with it so i will be o/cing good. One of the reasons why I also want this is because it would force me to upgrade to ddr2 ram, and if i stay with 939 then i can keep my 1 gig ddr400 ram, and buy another 1 gig to make 2 gigs. Im not really looking for the most future proof rig, but I am plannin on running vista liek way after it comes out and when all the bugs are fixed, by then I'll probaly get a dx10 card to go with the Lanparty, 2gig ddr400, Opteron 165. so what do you guys think?
