Makes me wish I had waited for Sandy Bridge before I built my system haha! Isn't that always the case with computers, there's always something better out right after you buy yours.

Anyone know which Asus AM3 boards are gonna support Bulldozer?

The motherboards to support AM3+ CPUs will be these by Asus. I believe MSI also have some that will just with a BIOS update. Gigabyte are releasing new revisions with support, though.

At high resolutions the video card makes most of the job.A decent and affordable AMD X4/x6 CPU is enough.
With the money left from building a decent AMD system instead of an Intel one you can get: a better video card , a decent sound card , a SSD , a better PSU ,etc.
Not to many people are able to "see" more than 60 frames per second so more than 60 are not really needed.
Consoles do 30 FPS and nobody is complaining.

Phenom x6 @ 170$+.... And the 2500k is faster, by like alot....

Seems like Intel won this round of Price/Performance wars.

From what I've seen, people have shown that when you have an SLI or Crossfire setup, CPUs can at times hold them back. That's why Intel Sandy Bridge has been so good, too. However, I look at my system, I see the constant 99-100% GPU usage on my single graphics card and could not justify a bottleneck...
Since I see SLI and Crossfire simply to increase NVIDIA's/AMD's annual revenue (not really for NEED, especially with today's games), I see no point in having more than one graphics card and thus see no point in speaking of bottlenecking. Not in my case, anyway, from what I experience with my particular system.

Having said that, if AMD Bulldozer pulls through as being better than Intel Sandy Bridge in performance and is similar for overclockability AND on top of that I can get an eight-core one with my current motherboard (according to Asus, I will be able to), then I'll happily get and AMD Bulldozer CPU. If it doesn't live up to the hype, I will wait until Intel Ivy Bridge is out, or whatever they release after. As for graphics card, this overclocked Radeon 5870 eats EVERYTHING with no visible lagging. Once it lags, on eBay it goes and in comes perhaps a Radeon 7000 series or GeForce 600 series card (just one, because more than one is silly! ).

That's only in the luxury that is the USA (for electronics prices). The Core i5-2500K is £180 in the UK, or $290 for you guys. Then again, a 1090T is £148, or $238.

Though an AMD chip might be "enough", I think a lot of people on this site would say "enough" just doesn't cut it. Enough works fine for my wife and mother, but not me. haha

Intel's SB chips may be about the same cost as a Thuban, but did you look at whole platform costs? Around these parts, a mid-range Intel board is about the same cost as a high end AMD board. Ok, with SB the board costs have come down a bit, but there is still the simple fact that AMD rules for people on a budget.
Alright, I plan on going Intel if Bulldozer disappoints, but AMD's current line is definitely plenty enough for gaming with the current crop of games. Yes, Intel's chips are faster clock for clock, and they have been for a while.

LT;DR: AMD chips are plenty, Intel does it better
