Well, personally I can't recommend the FX Series over a Winchester core to anyone not trying to compensate for something else. You won't see alot of noticeable performance difference betweena 3500+ Winnie overclocked and an FX-55.
I was going to hold out for the FX-57, which will used strained silicon on a 90nm, but after talking to the powers that be, it seems that AMD has no plans to release that in the immediate future, mainly because Intel has nothing that can even keep up with the current FX line....sucks for us, but is totally understandable. Why would you want to compete against yourself?
Anyway, my beef is more with newegg and he otghers, who have jumped up their prices more than $200 since December (From $829 to 1099)
