I will get a socket 939, better performace... but is there really a diff between a 10,000 rpm and a 7,200 rpm harddrive? What you guys think... a 36GB 10,000 rpm WD for the OS and then just a 7,200 rpm for my games???!!!??!? I am not really fimilar with harddrive configs, just cpu's, case mods, and wiring.
Also for another 150 bucks I will get the FX-53 I like the extra 512 L2 cache over the 3800+...
I want the ultimate performace if I am going to speed $2,300.. a little extra for a harddrive wont be that bad...
