    Its that time. I was looking at another DFI Lanparty/AMD combo but im a bit out of the loop since I've been pretty occupied with work since March. Should I be waiting for the new amd cores to come out here soon? What would you guys recommend me?

    There are still no concrete bechmarks of the upcoming AMD chips.

    If for some miracle that AMD delivers (they are still struggling with the delayed Barcelona) and outperforms the current intel chips,... Intel's Penryn will rape them in the ass again.

    DFI sucks donkey balls nowadays too. Their P35 is late and got disappointing reviews.

    The current hotness is of course, Intel chips and P35 boards. X38 chipset will come out by end of this month for Crossfire and rumored SLI. The only issue with X38 imo, is that most will be pushing DDR3 ram, so it will probably be expensive as hell.
