Thanks for that info, News. I would rather lick a scalding heatsink than purchase Intel, and it is good to see some AMD stuff here on this forum. Soon AMD will be kicking-butt ONCE AGAIN on the evil Intel! Just remember you heard it from Super Dave...

 I've been AMD for a long time, it's a hard habit I don't know if I want to break.  The Wolfdale chips are looking pretty good, but if Intel gets any more expensive I'd have to live in the computer to afford one.

 

They missed the Asus M3A on the list it's Amd 770 SB600, been having pretty good luck with it.  Now if they'd just give us some NB voltage it'd be nice.
