System being built in next 2month's

Pci-e for amd 939

my thought's

fx55 - i can afford it but i have better uses for $$$
4000+ - same case with fx 55 but might be bought
3800+ more reasonable but still overkill
3500+ execellent choice.

i was looking for your oponion's on which cpu and also any other suggestions. I will be doing heavy gaming, lot's of media and video work and multitask.

Please no intel fanboy's my mind is set to A64 and im not overclocking any time soon so thanx

ASUS 440BX P3B-F, Intel P3 @ 553Mhz, 128Mb Pc133 Ram, nVidia Gefore 256, IBM 20gig HD, Creative Sound Blaster Live,Lg Cd-Burner, Creative 52x Cd Drive, Microsoft Windows XP Pro/2000 Pro Duel Boot

Wow, you have a fairly elite board there, I'd put a PIII-S 1400 on it with an Upgradeware Slot-T adapter, go with 4 256MB PC133 modules from Crucial too.

I'd make the decision on your new A64 processor based on the prices THEN, not NOW.

D00D, I told him he'd be best off waiting until he's ready to build to pick the A64 CPU, because the prices change. What's so fanboy about that?

I always feel that you should base what you buy based on how long you keep it. If youre me, like I just did, you buy a A64 3000+ and overclock it a little because in reality I know Ill be upgrading a year from now because its my hobby since I have no life. So I buy mid range.

If youre planning to keep this computer for a long time then I suggest you go all out and get the best. Remember, you only spend the money once, but you use the computer all the time. Just grit your teeth, bite your lip and cringe as you pay for the items but once that part is over youll be glad you did it. If you upgrade often then go for the 3500+ or even 3400 Newcastle for 939. You get the point.
