    The launch date has been April/May since last year yet they come up with this "first we hear March/April" nonsense. Not to mention, the quoting of sources is "word has it," "we heard," and "the story was." Now I'm not saying the Inquirer is necessarily inaccurate, but the people there basically post a bunch of unverified/sourceless stories. It's not very professional when it comes down to it.

    FX CPU's are a waste of money unless you are a die hard overclocker. You can get pretty much the same performance out of regular CPU's. Skip the FX and get a nice dual core.

    Patriot 1866MHz EL series 2X4GB DDR3

    I agree, my 4400 X2 easily overclocks faster than an FX-60(100% stable@ 2.66ghz @2.5 volts). More performance for more than half the cost is the only way to go! I could go further, but for the games I play there is no need at the moment.

    Socket M2? Right now it's looking like it will be a minor improvement that won't even be worth the initial increase in motherboard price for anything but high end (unless the CPUs OC really well). It's irrelevent though, because if you're talking about next year, socket 939 will basically be the older, low-end and (for a few) mid-range machines. You wouldn't get a new system on it.
