Default The Conroe.

Hey i had a few quetions about the new conroe that is coming out.

1) Compared to the AMD AM2 how is its performance? Because i am hearing thatthe new conroes are supposedly going to kick major ***.
I was planning on getting a 3800+ then overclocking after the price drops, but now im not so sure.

2) How much are they going to cost? (price and speed)

3) What socket are they?

Thanks for the help.

well you can thank amd for releasing the am2 socket ahead of its actual processors time so you can make the upgrade sooner

Get a conroe there is not only amd in life dont be stupid like other people who choose always amd etc etc choose the best for you. Right now the best processor are the conroes you can see this from the benchmarks.
