hey noob next time read the title he didnt ask what AMD chip to get, fanboy.
I just want him to get the most value for money. If he's getting a new mobo, a Phenom II will perform better at lower prices.
There's no need to be agressive.
It's not like he was asking for i7 advice and I suggested the Phenom II.
It's just that it makes sense to choose AM3 with bettter a upgrade path than the dead 775, and superior performance at the same price of a Core 2 Quad system.
