Go with Conroe, they're from $150-1000 so the low ends are cheap, plus they beat the AM2s.

Sure they may be amazing, but where else or when are you going to get $300 cpu's that beat AMD's FX series costing you over $1000. I always wondered if i was making a mistake buying a E6600, but if AMD releases something better Conroe will still be a beast, and the new cpu's will still be pretty expensive from AMD, look how long the athlon series have held out. Just get a conroe dude, cheap, extremely high performance, you can't go wrong.
