Default New CPU

Im going to upgrade my gaming computer starting with the cpu, should i get an fx-57 or fx-60, or is it worth waiting for something new to come out.

Indeed best bet for you is FX60 on socket 939, the question is when the new chips are out [not speaking of conroe, but in general, lots of things suppose to come out in two months time] will you be able to upgrade you'r whole rig? because you could get better chips for cheaper in two months.....

I probly should just start a new rig, my mobo is trash and i still havn't gotten a decent power supply. Alright I guess i'll spend some money now on a new monitor, i could never bring myslef to buy a new one when i know i could be getting more performance instead... the one i have now is 8+ years old, with quite a bit of duct tape on it.
