Probably the 965 BE, even though it is technologically behind AMDs curve.

I'll toss in my vote for the 965BE. However, at this point in time I would wait for Piledriver benchmarks to see if it would be worth buying that instead.

The phenom is cheaper and has more headroom to OC. But as jaguarskx said, wait a little more.
