I have to second what Borries is saying. Need a little more info on what
you want to do with it before a good system can be planned for your
needs. That being said, since you said you prefer AMD, I just put
together a machine for a friend with the new AMD Phenom II X3 and it
screamed. Of course, I would have gotten the X4, but he wanted to save a
few bucks so he went with the X3. I think I'll be putting together a
Phenom II X4 system for myself in the near future. :)
