i think you'll be surprised how quick you'll be able to buy one. AM2 cpu's came out pretty quick and Intel produces more cpu's than amd.
With a choice of Pentium-D, or AMD X2, I would pick Core 2 Duo
Is that only one the choices!?!?! Lol. Ku st woke up, kind mad and cranky lol. I'd be lucky if I get a Conroe by Christmas!
