Default Bother with AM2 or not ???

If I plan on buying a new computer right now, but another new computer in 2 years, is it worth it for me to bother with AM2 right now? I'm a gamer and if I was to buy one within the next couple days it would be as follows:

AMD X2 4200
K8 939 Crossfire Motherboard
2 GB PC3200 RAM
Windows Media Edition- with remote
X Plorer Case
Seagate 200GB/7200 SATA IDE
LG 16x DVD RW
Samsung 19" 8ms LCD

Methinks we need to make it larger. About 10x larger.

And maybe...everytime someone logs on...there should be a popup that tells them to use the search engine. Then, after you've used it enough times, you don't get the popup anymore

I think its worth it if you are planning to upgrade to K8L.

I would also go with the 4000+ and OC it.

With an attitude like that its no wonder no one cares about helping you.

Search is not useless, there have been many times I've had a question and have gone to the forum search engine and not posted another thread which has been answered in previous threads.

flame!! muwahag
yeah..i agree with this... y would u take ur time to tell someone to use the search when u could just easily answer his question or leave it alone...we should get a popup with "Make Useful Replies"


to answer ur question i think u should get it...or if u can wait for Conroe, get it...
