Anyway, whether or not it's worth waiting for, is purely subjective. it's up to you.
Personally, I'd get an AM2+ motherboard with a Kuma (dual core) or Agena (quad core) chip. They will be a big jump from K8.
Agena will be coming out first, in Q3 this year.
alright alright, u convinced me, ill get the Agena FX
, ive never heard of it before so i did a little research on google at RCC n it turns out that Budapest
are server processors n Agena is a desktop processor. This is what totally changed my mind, because im so used to desktop processors i dont want to have a server, n i dont know how much of a difference a server processor is compared to desktop.
ive changed my mind n im getting the 1207FX+ mobo, because again, i researched n i found out that Agena FX
will support HT 3.0, same with AM2+ n AM3 *not sure what HT does, been a while since last time a checked*.
here are the sources that made me decides on getting Agena FX n a socket 1207FX+ mobo:
EDIT: *a bit of a typo on the socket type, it's suppose to be 1207FX+, not 1207+, i double checked*
thx for ur help, u help me a lot, n ur pretty cool smarts person i can talk to

If you want to ugrade quickly, go with AM2. You should always wait until the product matures. The first DDR3 that is released may not even perform that much better than the best DDR2 of the time. Look what happened in the transition between DDR and DDR2. I think DDR3 will be much better than DDR2 did compared to the older generation but still not worth waiting for.
really? DDR2 didnt perform so well when it was introduced to the public? Wow, that is a shock, never knew that.
hmm, well ive decided to go with Agena FX
, thanks to Apokalipse mentioning about it. I'll also go with 1207FX+ mobo because it will still support HT 3.0 *dont know what it does exactly, been a while since i checked it's definition*, and go with 2 x 2GB DDR2 800 SDRAM.
thank u so much for helping me, hope ur info on DDR2 n DDR3 is true, then it would save my life lol.

get a better Athlon for your current build, they cost nothing. and then just sit tight for the Agena. it will be well worth it. AM2s that are out right now are cost effective but they don't have the umpf of a Conroe. the Agena will be a big step up.
cant, my 3000+ is stuck on the board, meaning i busted one of the screws trying to take it off, sry
. I'll stick with it tell i buy Agena FX
ill give the mobo n processor to little bro, once he is mature enough to have his own computer.
