Default Which Amd Cpu?

Ok I am wondering what kind of cpu i want to get if i want to future proof my pc. Like people say 2 7800gtx's in sli is future proofed. Well should i get dual core amds or it doesnt matter cause i wont think of buying anything for my pc for a couple of years. it would be running on a dfi lanparty sli mobo.

i, I would say to go with a dual core pc, cause most games will probably support dual core in the future. but some other people will say go for the fx-57. but for me. go for x2 4800+

i dont know about new CPUS but Ati's new card should be out soon. And hopefully it will kick the 7800s *** so the 7800s price will go down faster!!!!
