I am revising my thinking on my new build. I already have the processor (AMD Phenom II 565BE) and just picked up an Antec HCG 750w PSU
But after review, Intel's lowly Dual core i3 2100 walks all over the Quad Core AMD PII 970.

In view of this I will sell the processor and and switch to an Intel 1155 build using the 2100 as my CPU and pairing it with the ASrock p67 Extreme4 Gen4 mobo, which will accept Ivy Bridge processors when they come out.

Microcenter has the 2100 @ $99 which is a steal compared to the 150 or so for the 970. Plus When the new AMD's and Ivy Bridge CPU's come out I can alwas pick up a 2500k or 2600k which will have dropped in price. I doubt AMD can catch up with intel at this rate, I do not expect too much from AMD's new FX CPU's. I think at best they'll be only slightly better than the 2550 and 2600 series

The only problem with Intel is that they always change to a newer socket which are incompatible with the older processors.

You can update the 1155 Sandy bridge to the New Ivy Bridge processors though :thumbup2:
On an aside does anyone know if Asus is coming out with a replacement for the D2x Xonar soundcard, its out of stock everywhere and looks like its being discontinued, its not listed on their website

If I were you, I would sit back and wait until late September before buying processors. AMD will be releasing the FX "Bulldozer" CPU's then, which should cause Intel to lower prices since the FX-8150P is meant to compete againt Sandy Bridge.

Dunno if I can wait that long, in an ideal world I would, but we'll see how it goes.
BTW When are the South Seas GFX cards coming out?

The Southern Islands (AMD Radeon HD 7000 series) GPU might be released around end of the year.
