Re: Which Processor? - Interesting...
You computer is pretty good as it is. However, if you really want to play games in the future, I would say either go for the X2 or wait until the M2 socket comes out. If you get the X2, you'll definetely have great gaming performace because nVidia has beta drivers that utilize both cores for gaming. Better two graphics cards than one, no?
If you wait for the M2, you can use DDR2 RAM, and since the latencies are constantly improving on DDR2, it will probably be better. However, DDR2 RAM is also a bit more costly, and you would have to buy 2GB instead of 1GB.
Hmm, you can get any motherboard from ASUS, Abit, or MSI. All of them have good boards with plenty of features and some great overclockability. However, a board can't support both AMD and Intel, because of the different socket types.
