From what I've read about those chips, they're a lil too late and the FX-55 and other AMD chips will still clearly outperform intel in the gaming arena (which is what the dual core chips are targeting). So once i get the money up i will most likely buy an FX-51 or FX-55. Just my 2 cents on the subject.
Yeah I'm gonna have to pretty much agree with that.
I finally got my system up to a what I consider a good all around machine. 6600GT, 1gb of good RAM, that CAN OC quite well, but unfortunately a high FSB will cause my games to crash, but not any application...hoping it was just my crappy FX 5700 causing that, haven't gotten the 6600GT yet, just ordered it.
But yeah I figure this will last me atleast a year then I'll upgrade to PCI-E, Socket 939, and get a dual core CPU assuming I can afford it
