i already have one bfg 7800gt and hopefully i will be able to find a second one..
but i know that the nex gen chips will be coming out soon,will i better off waiting for those
or should i go ahead and go for it with the fx 64?
by the way this my first amd build im always had intel...so looking really forward to it;)

Excellent choice in parts. I'd personally go for a 4800 X2 and OC it to save the cash. Unless of course you dont mind spending that on a cpu.
Also, the 5000+ X2 will be out soon, will be cheaper than the FX60, but runs at the same clock speed. (I think it only has 512kb L2 cache aswell, but you wont notice a difference unless doing a LOT of cpu intensive tasks such as encoding)
Lancool PC K62
Phenom II x3 @ 3.5Ghz
ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II
like i said this is my first amd build, right know i have a firstname.lastname@example.org
i thought that fx60 would be a great choice do you recomend any other cpu's
that would give me a great performance?
i know you said the 4800 x2
im not to familier with amd so i really dont know what to stick with...'
Heck any of the AMD64's over the 3200+ will be as fast as your P4 and faster at a lot of thing and with a little OCing they just blow away the P4's.Save yourself some money and get like dublin said the X2 4800+ or a 4000+ SD and OC it..I think the FX60 and FX57 are just a waste of money spend half the amount and get about 20% more performance with OCing it just make sense. Get a opteron 165 and another 7800GT and with that msi board which is awesome by the way and you will have one helluva PC
But then its always nice to have the fastest cpu out for a nice stable machine.Since overclocked PC's can be pretty unstable if you dont know what your doing or have the right parts
im not looking to overclock im not to famileir with it also..
but im just looking for a performace boost from with i have is the number like 4000+ and so the
equivalent to what a intel chip would be like a amd 64x2 4000+ would be like a intel 4ghz?
just wonder like i said not know to much about amd
damn pluse im having a hard time trying to find another bfg 7800gt!!
