    There hasn't been a new chipset out for amd motherboards in a while...it's been a while since the nforce2.

    When's the nforce3 coming out? What'd VIA doing?

    I'm afraid of buying an A7N8X Deluxe and a new better motherboard coming out a month later.

    the Athlon64 is coming out near the end of sptember so that's probably going to be what the next batch of chipsets are geared for
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Well yes the Athlon 64 will be released in mid September and use the nForce3 chipset (the Opteron is currently out and uses the nForce3 Pro chipset) but VIA has now its KT600 chipset out for Athlon XP's though it's still no match for the nForce2.

    so september is when everyone will be upgrading, huh. Perfect--it coincides nicely with Half-Life 2...a reason a lot of us will be upgrading anyway.

    I don't think the CPU is gonna be as big of a deal with HL2 as much as the graphics card you use. Obviously, you don't want a Pentium 133, but having a good graphics card will do a lot more for you than a faster CPU.

    When will Intel have their 64-bit proc out to compete with the AMD proc. (besides the Itanium cuz that's for businesses)

    don't know, maybe they are waiting to see if it will sink or swim in the home user market

    ...but Intel may regret that if it does catch on and AMD steals much of the market share (if they are in-fact waiting to see how 64-bit plays out)

    The Opteron seems to have already outsold Intels Itanic 2 in the time it's been available.
