definately, FX-53 all the way, that is if you are a gammer... If you are a number cruncher, which i know you all are, then you can stick with your 1000 dollar P4

I'm not picky...

Athlon XP 64 3400+
2GB PC4000 (2x1GB Dual Channel)
*Insert best motherboard here*
4x36GB 10,000RPM SATA RAID 0 config
256MB 9800 XT
*insert best sound card/speakers here*

As you can see, I'm not too picky, as long as it runs the new games for the next 2 years I would be happy.

Meanwhile, SuperSonicB!+CT#. is going to be getting the all the left over parts.

The Scary thing is that I do see myself doing this with in the next 12-24 months.

And when that set up starts showing it's age, then i will look into an AMD Athlon 64 FX.
