The Barcelona will be up to 360% as fast as a current dual core Opteron (or 180% per core)

And it's named after my favorite football team.

Well, all in good time. It'll take me a bit to save up this money.

I got the C2D too, but its by far the best thing in MY price range, and will for a long time. I don't think AMD is going to be releasing anything in the "fun side" of $300 that beats the C2D's...

Buy a better set of speakers, the X-230's are junk in comparison to the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1's or even the Logitech Z-3's.

Well I hope they would be for $100 and $50 more, respectively.
