Those prices really helped put this in perspective. I was trying to figure out why nobody was using an over clocked Intel part. Now I $ee.

Great practical tips on the CPU/GPU stuff, ect. Not a lot of people lining up to say that the new Intel chip doesn't matter. I read a few reviews on this new AMD P2 and came away clear as mud, but I'm crystal clear on this now. Good job. I linked here from, fyi.

A 4ghz AMD quad core sounds like a plan.

I'm running Linux, so not sure on the GPU. Nvidia has supported Linux for several years. AMD is making a heroic effort to support a full product line and they're releasing open source documents. I'm left wanting to buy both Nvidia and AMD. I guess Nvidia has physics support? I heard somebody mention running physics off the IGP. Not officially mentioned, on a forum, but a cool thought.
