Both Nitestick and Trotter have excellent input.

My 2-cents: If you can wait....do it.

If not (like me), the AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (x2 or not) is an awesome middle weight fighter. I overclocked mine to 2.4GHz w/ a Zalman CNPS9500 cooler... and: F.E.A.R. @ 65-70FPS, HL2 @ 100+FPS, HL2 E1 @ 70-75 FPS.

The FPS is based on an OC'd 7600 GT and RAM that is also OC'd, so take that into consideration.

Have fun!

in fact when it comes to overclocking the x2 3800+ it seems they average about 2.4ghz on the old stock cooler. the new stock cooler is far better.

Go with Core 2 Duo. The CPUs and accompanying motherboards will hit later this month, and even the lower end models will outperform a good chunk of the AMD X2 and (by far) P4 lines.
