I have a tower, monitor, mouse and keyboard. The only thing I need to do is upgrade all the stuff inside the box. I suppose I could use a new tower but I have a good solid Antec one that I'm planning on adding a few fans and stuff to. Maybe I'll even save up and water-cool it, who knows
Thing is, I'd rather not wait too long. I don't really need the performance of an AMD FX or the Conroe, or at least I don't think I will. From my experience and what I've heard, the AMD dual-core and AMD in general is a workhorse, and since next-gen games are probably going to improve multithreading support I thought I would put most of my cash into getting an insane video card and RAM
And if it's true that AM3 processors will work on the AM2 socket I'll just upgrade to a much better processor later on.
