Yeah. On a side note, the new AM2 processors will also be equipped with on die temperature sensors to allow accurate readings of CPU temperature.

Should be good

I'll have to get onto research with all the new PC advancements coming into play. I feel behind the times

I think that the AM2 processor will be good down the road, but right now you wouldn't really see that much of a performance boost. If you looked at the benchmarks that were previously posted, the 939 socket processors beat the AM2 socket by a landslide. It uses ddr2, but its not really utilizing it to its full potential. I think you'd be better off with a X2. There will be a time for AM2 but right now its not it!

I think your decisions made

Go for AM2, and then you will be set for the future.
