I know what you mean regarding the FX60. It would be great to have but like you said, it'll cost me about £200+ to aquire. The Opteron or the 4800+ would be the one i'd go for due to the un-justifiable cost of the FX60. I just wouldn't be able to OC it that much. But I think i'd be fast enough anyways.
I say save your money and go the full hog. Thats what i'll be doing as suggested in my thread. You can't go wrong with this upgrade. It uses the 790FX chipset, Cheaper, but faster, DDR 2 and the Black Edition Phenoms are pretty cheap! £200 for quad core @ 2500MHz, 4000MHz HT speed, 3 cache's (the 3rd @ 2MB!). It's a nice CPU and like WorshipMe says. They're revising the Phenom's architecture.
