AMD has already dropped there prices, you could pick up a 4800X2 for about $320 last I checked. Opteron prices weren't affected though.

Conroe is going to be good for most of us, because we dont buy bleeding edge products. I will be looking for an AMDx2 to plop in my 939 mobo.

I was going to go the Conroe route but by the looks of pricing they will be high for quite some time. Looks like I may go ahead and go the X2 route also.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

People are acting like Conroe is the second comming or something, I think its being hyped up extremely too much BUT for good reason. Conroe's overclock like crazy, some seeing 4.0Ghz on high end air setup. I would go conroe but their are no 590xhipset mobo's out yet meaning no SLI for me.
Intel really did it this time and gave it to AMD bad, Conroe is blowing away AM2 (which shouldn't have ever been released due to its poor performance).

The next year will be interesting, as AMD and the ATI deal is official, AMD also states Quad Core by 07 and Intel's Kentsfield has been released to a few people already and their results are downright amazing.
