it would be a fresh build. and i was thinking am2 socket if i did go amd

As for OCing i've only done stuff with my vid cards and don't know anything about ocing cpus so i Ocing might be limited

Conroe.

Just wait until Intel actually releases it first.

It could be, as I am taking a bit of a gamble on this one. First off, I don't think I'll have the money, or time for Conroe going to school and all. So if I would build a Conroe system, it would be pretty much right when they come out. Which means paying a premium for a mediocre motherboard. Also, I am quite sure that my setup now will hold me over 'til '07 which is when the Kentsfield chips will be out.

All in all, who knows, I might go Conroe. I don't know.

Even with the expensive mobo's:

Mobo = $250 (Nice one any ways, there are some ~$150 options)
Total = $600

That set up will beat a:

FX-62 = $800
Mobo = $150
Total = $950

Now I know, in the lower end set ups the difference isn't as great, but point is, the Price/Performance of the chips, does counter the prices of the mobo's right now to a point. All that being said, I am disappointed at how expensive the nicer mobo's are right now.
