    I wish I had never seen this. Makes me feel like waiting even longer to upgrade to Socket 939. Damn it! This is absolutely the worst year in a long time to upgrade. to many thing are happening over the next two years. I see my money depleting quickly.
    Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

    heh, I still thing 939/940 will be a better solution, more so for an smp system.

    and you will have a good upgrade path, unlike intel regular let's change the specs so everyone has to buy our latest chipset trick

    That's exactly what I mean Notice the bold. It tells me that AMD will also cut prices which meakes me want to wait until the price drops. Is it worth the wait or should I just get my s939 system right away?

    FWIW, I'm planning to do my upgrade around Christmas, or shortly thereafter (depending on the memory market).

    By that time, several new CPU formfactors should be out and their supporting chipsets and mobo into a second or third revision (to clean up the bugs, get BIOS improvements, etc.).

    PCI express should be in full swing, with other people finding out which mobo/card combos are fastest/most stable, as well as a driver update or two.

    There are a lot of interesting new technologies coming out, but I don't want to be the guinea pig, so to speak.
