I think Im going to stick AMD. I hear really good things about the Core 2 Duo's. as well as Kentsfield, and will not knock it. They are on top as of now with a VERY significant performance gain, as well as a marketing that consists of reasonable pricing... But, again, I'm partial to AMD. The only problem I'm having about a leap to AM2 is that I'm wondering if all new K8L's will be supported by the current AM2 boards like they say they are going to be. Also, I'm looking for good builds, with no excess of $600. This will need to include the motherboard, processor, memory, and a new PSU. I'm going to stay with my current 7600GT as I am very impressed with its performance, even when coming to Oblivion. Also, a special note on memory, I'd prefer 2 GB. I realize this will be difficult to achieve with $600 but its what I have to work with. Please try and keep it under 600, but at MOST 700. I can stretch if the rice/performance is worth it. I appreciate all suggestions into a decent build. Alright Chozart, lets see your specialty
Side note: I read on the Inquirer that 65nm AMD's will be coming out soon, maybe by next month?
