I am on a price/performance type gaming build so I choose amd. Is this a good build? I already have a new monitor its a asus led 19 inch and only goes up to 1440x900 reso but I got it because it was only $119 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Would I have a bottleneck with the cpu or is it all good? Should anything be changed, I dont want to over do it if say I don't really need like a 850w power supply ect.. A little future proofing is ok but it doesnt have to be way out there. I would be upgrading from a amd 64 3700+,geforce 7900gtx,ddr 2gig ram, windows xp to windows 7. I hope I would notice a difference with this upgrade?

You have a nice rig. Although you can go for a full quad core rather than a tri core. Like the X4 640.

Why don't you buy the graphics card, PSU and Windows now and then get a new AMD chip when it comes out soon (months). There should be a better range of mobos and CPUs that could fit your budget that would be faster and more future-proof than buying right now.

I also think 850W is too much. 650W should be OK.

If he is then i must say its not just months away. It may take a while for them hit the market. By then SB would come out and fill in the market.

Also read that Bulldozer is server first then desktop. So a little more waiting for us!!!
