The best argument against evolution are creationists themselves. They prove that life is devolving rather than evolving.

the FX-53 uses a different core and it comes with the multipliers unlocked. Fx-53 also has more cache.

this is all based on the assumption that Mr. Gates will be pulling double-shifts for the next 3 years like he has the past 3.......RIGHT!
Haha; 64-bit will be mid 2005 for XP... but thats not really important other than for the releases of Intel's 64-bit Chips. Longhorn will be 64-bit though; so it'll be mid 2005 before we have a reasonable Windows for 64-bits, mid 2006 before we have a great 64-bit OS.

Indeed, . I hate the fact that Microsoft and Intel are in cahoots with one another, and 64Bit OS will probably come when Intels lame 64Bit chips are released! (BOOOO INTEL, YOU SCUM!!)

Personally, I know that main difference between the FX series and normal Athlon64 is their cores, and the fact that the processor FX series is optimized for visual processing with its Sledgehammer core. Other than that, no differences. If you are going for gaming, go FX series, otherwise if you are into games, but not a hardcore gamer, go standard ATHLON64.
