I noticed...

PileDriver, AMD's next series of CPUs, they are coming out sometime in the next few months.

If you can wait for the CPU then wait.

If you can't wait then get either the Phenom ii x4 or the A8-3870K

If you do lots of multitasking most of the time get the A8, if you game most of the time just get the Phenom ii.

If u intended to use the on-board GPU of A8 go for it.
If you will use a discrete GPU go with FX 4170 or 965 BE, the first is better but more expensive too, your call.

how many cores will the PileDriver have? also how much will it be?

The price won't be more than the bulldozer's price.

The core range would be probably 2-6/8.

Okay then. just don't buy them as soon as they are released, wait for the benchmarks to arrive and see how they perform.
