I fully agree, the only upgrades (well the major ones) that the AM2 offers uis that its mroe energy efficient and it fully supports DDR2. AMD put ALOT of time into developing the memory controllers on the 939 socket, which handles DDR VERY well. Currently the difference is negligable, but in a couple of years when its more developed (and cheaper) it might be worth it to switch.
Also stated earlier was to go with a X2 after 7/23. This is exactly what Im going to do. Dual core at a lower clock (which can be OC'd) is going to be much better than a singel core at a higher clock (I definitly plan on OC'ing, so I should have the best of both worlds).
And even with the idea of RHT, I think it will stil take a couple years for it to be perfected so that it works all the time at its fullest capacity. (i.e. let other people work out all the kinks)
