I'm trying to decided between the following two CPU/Motheboard combos:

Pentium D 950 CPU with ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe Mobo


Athlon X2 4200 AM2 with ABIT AN8 32X Mobo

Any comments on the two setups?

I would have to say go with AMD too.

I'd say wait until the release of Conroe... both companies have announced HUGE price drops... some to the tune of 50%. That's worth waiting for... right?

Hold off all buying decisions till july 23rd, at that point all speculations on price and performance will cease and u can make as an informed decision as the rest of us.

at this point i am lookign at everythign else i need for my next build, HDD/GPU/case etc..
