The Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 is only $310. Stock speed is 2.4ghz, but even at that rate it owns an overclocked Athlon FX-60 at 2.8ghz+, which makes the E6600 pretty damn good when it comes to it's price/performance ratio. Oh and it's a beast at overclocking too. From the engineering samples that Ownage has showed me, just air cooling could get it to 3.0ghz.

or you can get the X6800 and oc it to 5.04Ghz http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=104227
or, E6700 @ 4.1Ghz on AIR! http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=104484

Jeebus! Wait, is that X6800 on LN2 or any form of "extreme" cooling? Damn...that E6700 can get that high just on air? Whoowhee! I knew they could overclock like beasts, but I never imagined it to be this high!

the X6800 is on LN2 i believe. And the 9 sec super pi Conroe was on Ln2 too. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=105125

Granted those are fast CPUs, but I still feel that AMD is giving the best bang for the buck type deal.

Not when Core 2 Duo comes out. Dude, the E6600 at stock speeds, performs JUST AS WELL, if not better than the FX-62, AMD's fastest processor. The only difference, is that the FX-62 costs over $1,000 and the E6600 costs $300.

Then there's the Core 2 Duo E6300. For $183 it can keep up with the FX-60. Now that's cheap.

Not really... Gaming industry isn't really pushign the limits of CPU abilites as of late. My AMD 3200 with a proper GPU could run anything outdoay maxed out settings without a hitch.

true, but maybe this new push in CPU technology will incourage game programmers 2 take advantage of it or something...i hope

You still want to balance things out. If you're going to run Quad SLI with two 7950 GX2's with your A64 3200+, then it's going to bottleneck like crazy.
