Well, the 3000 can handle any game out right now. You can get the 3200, and OC at least a little. The 3200 is around $170. THe 3700 is really nice as it has 1MB cache, and not much more expensive than the 3200 ($220).

i wouldn't waste sleep over waiting for socket M2 i think like gaara (i'm pretty sure it was gaara) and that it's not going to be the revolution its cracked up to be although i'm not saying it's a bad thing i'm just saying people who are waiting so that they can pay a lot more for something that isn't going to be a vast improvement may be dissapointed. 3000+ or 3200+ are your best options for the moment i suppose.

Get a Opteron 148 Venus with a Dfi Lanparty Ultra-D and overclock to FX-57 speeds on air
You will need some good ram to do that unless you use dividers.
