Hey guys I'm new to this forum but I have a question for you, I have been out of the pc game for a while, but it's time for me to build another computer(this will be my second), I just recently heard about the new intel conroes, and how they are much better than the amd's, should I wait till the conroes come out or just go with an athlon. By the way I'm looking at the fx-57

Defiantly wait until Conroe. It is only one month and a week more to wait. (Possibly another week onto that for it to filter into the market.)

A FX-57 (2.8Ghz, 1MB L2 cache) is $811 and a Single Core processor.

By conservative standards, and assuming the FX-57 was a Dual Core, it would be comparable (conservatively) to a 2.4Ghz Conroe.

A E6600 (2.4Ghz, 4MB L2 cache) is $315 and a Dual Core processor.

You pick.

Y you comparin the FX-57, the Conroe E6600 beat the FX-62 (dual-core which is $1000+) But still, if a $315 CPU could beat even a $600 CPU, u'd buy the cheaper one ;) (not talkin about any specific CPUs, just hypothetically)
