I understand the difference between the 2 processors. Multi-threading advantages vs. the single app speed of the FX-57. For a gamer that poses serious soul searching in itself. More important though, my question is these - I've read that the FX-57 is the way to go to take full advantage for the new nVidia 7800 video cards, can the X2 achieve the same results? Also, I know that there are those with a better knowledge of the future of the market; If I go all out and buy one of these shiny new X2s what are the chances that in 4-6 months there will be dual 2.6 - 2.8 cores? Or even a dual core FX? Than there is the rumor of AMD moving from 939 to M2 pin sets! That means that if I move now upgrading later may be much more pricey and difficult.
All of this has left me searching for help. I have long been a gamer and always really wanted that Ultimate PC. Now that I finally have the means for it seems I may have had the worst timing possible. Any and all help/advice will be more than greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading and you thoughts.
