just looking for the best performance increase

and if the amd is the way to go, could you also recommend the best motherboard to get along with it. must be Agp and support 4 512 sticks of this G.Skill

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Go dual core.....its Worth every penny and you do stuff you never though possible...My freind can minimize Doom3, Turn Itunes on, Check his Email, and Scan for spywre...its the ****...and as for a motherboard I cant help you in that department......but yeah why 4 512 sticks? looks like your planning to overclock..

I wish I had my Computer...:(
