The ATI X1950 will be out then - so prices may come down.

GET A CONROE (lol had to)

But on a serious note I say stick with what you have, as people will say Conroe is alot better, but if you are not going to overclock why bother. Also, that system will stand up to anything you throw at it, mine does and it is a lower video card too, so why upgrade or buy expensive crap (mobo and RAM) when you do not have to.

Conroes are E XCELLENT, but as all new tech is it is far to expensive to be worth it, people who say it is so cheap need to realize you have to factor in RAM and the mobo into the processor, its a package deal, if I cuold run a Conroe off of my A8N-E mobo I would.
