I would go with an X2 3800, and if you dont have it already, go SLI. The price on the 4800's has not really dropped that much I don't think. Plus, the X2 3800's OC like crazy. I wish I got one of those instead of the 4600+. If you can find a cheap one, get a 4400+

4X4 will not be socket AM2. I believe it will be socket F, the 1207 pin processors. If you do go AM2, remember you will have to buy DDR2, and RAM prices have gone through the roof lately. I would just go with the 939, and do a whole upgrade when AM2+ or AM3 come out in 2007, but thats just my opinion!

To get the most out of your current system with the least cost for an X2 look into a 165 Opty, just hope you get a great air OCer!
Or just keep the 3700+

Should have sold the current system and go AM2. S939 systems are not going to worth a lot next year when K8L is out on AM2/AM2+.

Have to use a longer term perspective to value your TCO. S939 is trash now.
