AMD's new core. Basically the successor to the K10. The official name is Phenom though.

I have to agree there. Can't beat them. For AMD, AMD/ATi chipsets are the way to go. And some nVidia.

That last one is the best out of them all IMO, I would get one in a heartbeat only if their higher wattage ones weren't so expensive.

lhuser, I wouldn't get an Intel motherboard....other than the D975BX2 or D975BX...the other ones are just pretty crappy and more orientated for no overclocking....none what so ever. I would rather get a DFI P965-S or a ABIT Quad-GT, or an ASUS P5B(DLX)

I don't do OC that board will be fine for me. Actually, the Intel boards are crap in another way. This one, for example, won't accept 2.1V RAM, which is preety inconvenient.

The P5B seems to be a best bet.

IMO, the BX and BX2 series are a waste for me.
