Well i don't think it's really hype when benchmarks show that C2D completely destroys Athlon... I mean it really is a fact. But that's why i posted with my disclaimer on my first post, that we're sure you know but are just sticking with AMD.

Yes AM3 will fit in an AM2 socket, it just won't get the benefits of DDR3 that AM3 will have with it.

They are just a little behind in the transitions Intel has made in the last year.

5 years from now, I'm sure the Intel : AMD ratio will be very similar to what it was before Core 2 Duo's release...

I'm happy with it and haven't had any problems with it.
Crosshair overclocks fine it gives you plenty of overclocking options,
I keep the FX62 at 3GHz, I've had it up to 3277MHz I'm not much of an overclocker, I'm a gamer as long as my game's play good I'm happy.
