IMO on AM2, I'm not convinced on the cheaper processors, as they are noticeably slower than the mid-range 939 processors. To get any real benefit out of the new AM2 generation processors, you need to go straight up to the AM2 dual-core range.
Also, because this new technology is only five months old, there are lots of teething troubles going on with various boards, various processors and various types of memory. Some boards do not like certain types of memory, some boards do not like certain PCI-E graphics, some boards aren't keen on performing too well. Therefore I personally cannot recommend an AM2 base at this time. I'd give it another six months at least.
