Yeah but I already have my AMD and A8N SE lying around boxed up since December. Why not just upgrade all my other parts, just use the AMD because it'll work better than my prescott and my current pre built motherboard machine and then when I find that it's time to upgrade in about 6-12 months then I can buy a core 2 duo and mobo and DDR2?
