Looks like my next CPU will be a X2 then.
I was thinking of getting a Conroe, but since X2's will be so cheap... they win. I mean, I wont do that much gaming with my computer, so it's not like I need the lastest stuff. And I'm sure a computer with an X2 and 2GB RAM will run Vista fine.

I'm going to do a major system upgrade soon as vista comes out, up to 4 gigs corsair XMS and one of the dual-core AM2 CPU's (dunno what they'll be on when vista comes out).

I won't want one for a while yet, but thats great news for me when I do
I don't tend to go for top of the line. As long as its fast, and isn't ancient enough to rise the titanic, I'm all with it.

WOW you will never guess when my birthday is
July 24 I need to thank AMD because a 50% discount on there X2 line means good bye to my AMD 3200!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103546

My new birthday present can you say sweet if 50% is true then thats only 230. EVEN IT WAS 270 or so it´'ll be a steal!

My friend is ticked atm he just bought a brand new spanking 600 buck X2 line CPU to find out he could sayve 50% in a month.
