put your money towards a better gpu, like an x1950 pro. They sell for around 199 at newegg. Your opty clocks to fx60 speeds already so a better cpu may not be worht it and CD2 you have to ditch more hardware. Besides I would hold off getting a total new system for a bit yet as quad cores and DDR3 setups are coming up.

if you have the cash, a dual core proc is worth it. opty 165's will overclock past the fx-62 procs

Newegg shipped me a CCBBE stepping Opteron 165, im running it at 2.7 right now, need to tweak a little, stressprime isnt having it on one of the cores, but i also havent added any voltage to it yet.

Now just because I got that stepping doesnt mean you will, but its a good time, people have been receiving decent Ocer's lately (900mhz or a 50% OC in about 30 mins from installation is pretty damn good if you ask me)..

And get a GPU Bestbuy has PNY 7900GS' in stores for $150 outright... not a bad buy.... might be worth it...

I those two upgrades will increase performance pretty well, and wont cost a ton, 320ish dollars to pull them both in.

I am very pleased with my increase... I noticed things run better, and my windows installation on the new HD was faster all together, the system boots up quicker and runs smoother, especially with my OC hehe.

Thread Starter 
Hey guys, thanks for all the replies. I've been ungodly busy lately, and haven't been on the site as much as I would like.

Anyway, yes, I know I need a GPU. I was going to wait out until DX10 came out, either get the best bang for buck of DX10, or just go with a DX9 card on the cheap, and let any bugs in DX10 work out before going into that market. It all depends in that area.

As for a CPU, it looks like that opty 165 is getting all the votes. Is that the highest hitting CPU from AMD for 939? If I'm upgrading the CPU, I might as well get the best one, because there aren't anymore coming.

Highest-hitting? I think that's the FX-60.

Opty 165's the best deal though, price-performance wise.

generally on air yes it is ecspecially for the price you cant beat it, you can get others that start out higher but in the end most amds hit the same wall on air for the most part and the 165 tends to get to the top of this wall the easiest of all there chips

as for the gpu if you can wait another month or two for the ati solution to comeout and maybe get soem of the benefits of lower prices then thats cool go for it,
