agree, agree , agree with all above, I think the AM3 + will worth for the next 2-3 years, AM3 + will also be discontinued, but who knows, it all depends on AMD, if in the 2 years come back to producing AM4 using DDR4, he he he, what would you think ?
that's just the Intel 'fanatics' trying to mentally prepare themselves for AMD/Bulldozer competition.
and AMD's upgrade path has ALWAYS been more user friendly than Intel's..
with all the delays and stepping revisions that keep pushing Bulldozer back, IT BETTER PERFORM.
I use to keep hearing about Bulldozer being 50% faster in certain testing environments than Intel SB.
I do not of course believe it but, let me see..
you did the right thing even though I feel the 1100T or any AMD 6-core is crap and all you really needed
was the 955BE or 965BE and you would have been fine.
but the AM3+ motherboard is the right thing to do.
I bought the 1100t for rendering when BF3 comes out because I going to end up making videos and stuff.
The number one reason why I dont belive that artical it seems pretty stupied for bulldozer to come out for only one year and then all of a sudden swich sockets. If your going to do that just start with the different sockets.
