    When it came to most games and single-threaded performance benchmarks, it absolutely crushed. (thg link)

    However it is not surprising to see AMD X2's and Dual Core P4's trouncing it in apps that can take advantage of dual-core goodness.

    I'm hoping that the release of the FX and the X2 will drive lower end FX's way down in price in about 6 months.

    Amen to that. I want at least an AMD so i can take my p4 and throw it out the window.

    looking at the benchmarks, there really isn't that much of a difference between the 55 and 57, just a smidgen more in speed. But the price is way out there. I don't think it would be cost effective for someone to upgrade, however, I first time builder would be impressed.
