The Phenoms, are AMD's new processors, coming out in a few months. And they are backwards compatible with socket AM2.

Here is a simple guide for overclocking, that I learned from:

I think the Phenom X4s, which are the quad cores, will be around $200-400. I'm not sure, but that's what I'm assuming. And the Phenom X2s, look like $100+ to $200+.
