Well im building a new computer and im asking for you guyses thoughts on a setup, i was thinking about either the am2, or the conroe. I was wondering if you think the conroe is worth the xtra money, since the prices of amd will be dropping so much. well anyways what do you think about these setups..

First off. That board doesn't support Conroe. I don't think many do yet. There will be a lot when Conroe is finally released.

Conroe is definitally worth the money. For about $190 you can get the lower end Conroe, or an X2 3800+. The lower end Conroe is about equivalent to the 4600+ (I believe). Also, the Conroe has high overclocking potentials.

Unoverclocked. But it might have been the 4400+, I'm not sure. Infomatic would know, though.

thats still really good.

are there any downsides to the conroe? as far as ive seen, it blows away AMD's prices, and performance. Whats the catch?

No catch. New generation of products. What was the catch when Athlon 64s came out? None. (Sort of the same thing)
