As for spending that kind of money if you got it get it .On the other hand a new line of Processors , Mobo`s and Pci express video is on the horizon 1st Quarter of this year .
Also there are plenty of pictured tutorals on building your own system .Put in a search for how to build a computer

Are you really willing to spend about $1000 just on a processor??? If you are, then why don't you wait for a while, because I have heard that windows will soon come out with a 64 bit managable OC (for the AMD 64). Which will be a much better option, because the 64 bit is almost half the price and almost as good as the Pentium Extreme Edition.

go with the fx 51 it is better in some benchmarks and worse in others but at way less cost it is the way to go without a question not to mention getting to play with 64 bit stuff

Though im glad to see Intel get in gear to reclaim the title at any expanse.Think EE was a rush thing to just put something out.

Buck's your laying down for a rise in performance seem's very extreme.Specialy since most application's dont even come close to taxing most system's anymore.

Yeah, it really showed how scared Intel was of the 64
