First post here so it's good to meet everyone. I have had the same rig for about 3 years now and it's time to upgrade. I have a Raptor that I am carrying over and the rest of the stuff (drives, keyboard, etc.) I will also carry over. The main four components that I need to get are:
CPU Motherboard RAM Video card
Since this is the CPU forum I will just stick to the CPU. I have been reading up so I know the new Dual Core CPUs are coming from Intel soon. I was just wondering if it is possible to get a CPU that will perform as well as the Conroe CPUs now? I am eager to get the machine built so I am not that interested in waiting a month. I was looking at the Pentium D960 which is available now. How do you think it will compare to the Conroe E6400? Would it be a big mistake not to wait for the Conroe? Thanks for any suggestions!!

Either wait for conroe or get an amd set up. Conroe eats pentium D for breakfast. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Dual core net burst technology. sell you old stuff and then upgrade.
