Took your advice. Ordered a 3800+ X2, DFi NF4, 2x512 PC3500 DDR433 and a evga 7600gt!

It will be much better than my p4 2.66 533fsb northwood with a 6600gt and ddr333! Thanks for sure. Plus the 939 is proven. AM2 is to new and flakey. I wont upgrade for 2 years probably so I feel I am straight.

Thanks.
