What is the definitive answer? Would it be stupid to buy a AMD X2 right now? I know that technology is always evolving blah blah blah, but from what I've read, Conroe is going to be cheap and fast and even if it doesn't live up to the price, AMD is cutting prices drastically. Thoughts?

Intel 975X, P965, G965, Q965, Q963 along with NF5 and ATI's offerings. I would go for 975. These are all LGA 775.

Good Job copying me word for word. And the only part that was original (the last part) is false. The BadAxe is and will remain an excellent motherboard on the 975X chipset.

I don't think so. I can't remember where, but I saw a chart of what motherboards all the manufacturers would be putting out (on an AMD-Intel basis) and DFI was almost exclusively AMD. They may make some Intel LGA775 boards, but they aren't planned to. ASUS is the DFI of Intel though.
