For right now the only AMD chip I recommend over Intel is the X2 3600 (Brisbane) due to its high overclockability and low price. When July 22 comes...the Q6600 will be one of the best CPU deals in a very long time.

Blah, waiting is useless. There will always be better deals... and waiting just prolongs the agony. Although you might see some sunshine this way...hah!

Fun stuff.

Q6600 is stated to be released at around $270 which is insane for a dual core clocked at 2.4ghz I think.
