    Seeing your current specs upgrading would be quite pointless. Why not wait for Conroe?

    Well this is not an upgrade I`m going 2 do right away. Maybe in about 2months or so. I`m just looking because with vista right around the corner and thats O.S. is a memory hog. I know the conroe is coming out and the new am2 with ddr2 memory. So the x2 prossers will get very cheep and it would be an upgrade that will be easy on the pocket. I will have more speed and I also want an x1800xt crossfire board. Ati expess have some problems with the intel boards. So if i want the full power of crossfire my best bet is to go with Amd
