I see there is the opteron, X2, and FX. I am lost. Which one should I get for the best, long lasting bang for the buck? __________________

GO BUY A CORE 2 DUO and mobo. But if you don't one of the X2 series is more than enough. Look at my thread on this page for more info. Also wait for others to put in their 2 cents... __________________ i5 750@3.8GHz [24/7] \\ 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws \\ 640GB WD Black + External Storage \\ HD5770 \\ Win7 x64 \\all housed in a neat little P180 mini.
