Yeah, you will, but I'd wait The 3000+ is still to new to really justify the $450 bucks

I'm not bothering with any 64bit processors until they've been out a while and software/hardware companies have had time to catch up.

I second that. If you want, feel free to send me your 3000+ after you buy the 3400 : P I'm on a 2200, and I don't see myself upgrading until they're offereing high 4000's or even 5000's.

what about AMD athlon 64 FX-53. Is this one much faster than 3000+.

B/w my 3000+ doesn't feel that fast. Even when oc'd it still is prety slow?

The FX-53 would destroy that 3000+ That good thing about the 3400+ is that it is alot cheaper then the FX-51, but just as fast if not abit faster

But you still have an update CPU there, and it's really not practical to buy a $450 CPU right now when you just bought one and were on the verge of new technologies

Your gonna pay $890 for bragging rights??

Well, if I had the money I might do it for that reason too

As for Mobo's I don't really know, but you might want to wait for the socket cause then you can take advantage of dual channel, unregistered memory Registered memory is REALLY expensive, upwards of $300 dollars I believe
