If I need a new mainboard, ram, and prcoessor, it makes sense to pay $309.00 instead of $287.00. A bit more for the Conroe, sure. Have you seen benches comparing the two?> If I'd rather spend 22 bucks more on a Conroe, it's my prerogative. I need a ram upgrade, my board sucks for supporting ram. Or at least anything with higher voltage requirements.
I'm not bustin on anyone who chooses a 3800+. I'm just looking to the future, and it doesn't seem like AMD's performance line will be staying with AM2.
Nor did I say people had to go Conroe.
"Paying a several dollar difference, you could get a e6600."
"Intel Kinda made it impossible for AMD's old stuff to compete, even with lower prices"
Just saying it was very possible for budgetted builds, and its more like a $50 difference in most circumstances.
