    Personally, yes I think it's worth the upgrade. PVT, my system was almost the same as yours and I am very happy with the upgrade. You already have the ram and mobo, so the chip wouldn't cost much.

    Ahhh If you already have a am2 at 90nm it sure is not worth an upgrade.

    Explain. Dual core for vista might be a good idea.

    The dual core is great, plus it's really cheap. After overclocking it, I am getting great scores.

    worth sitting on the fence imo, let the fab process mature a little to be sure of chips that clock real nice ;)

    i'll only upgrade if I see its clock for clock faster than its 90nm am2 x2 counterpart by around 15-20% at least or of course if it clocks at least 15-20% higher.

    I am sticking with my trusty 939 at the mo and am soon going to order a Opty 185, just waiting for my 1800XT warranty refund and then its all systems go, looking at a total system upgrade late summer/early autumn I fink, not sure whether I am gonna stray to the darkside or stick with AMD.

    Having said that, those Brisbanes look nice and are well priced, in a few weeks they will be really reasonable and a 700Mhz overclock on nice low volts cant be bad! I would be inclined to hit her with 1.5V and watch her race! But then I fry more systems than eggs!

    I really want to see what these chips can do with a good air cooler and a good board...

    Maybe then will I buy one.... and replace my board... so If I do, I may just end up selling my 4200 and m2n.

    I posted those results in the AMD overclockers club. Managed 2.6 GHZ before I chickened out.
