Not for ages you i'm afraid, not even pre-release testers are out, and the outlook doesnt look good for it either, Core 2 Duo is wiping the slate with everything at the moment. I am a bit of an AMD fanboy, but ive had to change my views with Conroe, Although its rather expensive its probably the most upgradeable option at the moment as it is supporting all the latest technologies and is the newest out so its here to stay. Good luck with your new build.

512MB eVGA 7900GT KO is out of stock.

So get this one

MSI 7900GT

or eVGA 7900GT KO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130033

but i recommend the first one because it has higher memory speed

Well, It will be a few months before I do this build. I don't have the money yet but it is nice to start early. I have around $300 now but I get $75+ a week so It will come soon.
Should I go am2 and forget conroe and once am3 sockets come out buy but only for a good price. Or should i go conroe.
