    Current reports indicate that how well the 45nm CPUs will overclock depends on the lot, so its a toss up. I think if you where to buy Intel for overclocking either pick a G0 Q6600 or wait for Intel's 45nm process to stabilize. Just make sure you use applications that can make use of more than 2 cores. Otherwise a fast dualcore is probably a better buy anyway.

      The consensus is that for linux the Phenom is NOT the better choice?

      We have yet to see conclusive linux benchmarks since some issues related to kernel are still being resolved.

        The Phenom 9600 has been clocked to 3,25 GHz with air cooling. From what several german forums say, all the new Phenom's (9600 BE) are able to reach 2,8-3,0 pretty easy now instead of at launch where they didn't even reach 2,6 GHz... and with the B3 stepping launching today, which seems to be able to get overclocked a little higher, the Phenom is definitly not a bad choice even for high-end gamers now.

          Buy one, then you will see how fast it will get (or not).

              once ATI/AMD provides state of the art open-source drivers, I might go back to an all-AMD system by end-2008 beginning of 2009. let's hope for the best...

                If somebody from AMD wants to send me one set I would take it but I will not buy it. I really prefer Intel/Nvidia (PCI-E) for much better stability and really good speed. Intel/ATI (PCI-E) is an extremely bad combination. Informer Nvidia/ATI (AGP) was working more stable on Linux too but that X700SE card killed my nerves. Especially when switching from ati to fglrx -> system lock - that's not normal...
