Well i'm planning on doing a little upgrade after christmas when all debts are paid etc.. etc.. I need advise on the processor, i've always been an AMD fan for years, but i now have a p4 2.4 478. i think, i'm going to need a new mobo as well, as i'll be going to a 775 socket if i stay with intel or a 939 if i go back to amd. The price range i'm thinking of is about $300 or so, what to get is the question. I'm never going to overclock it. so with all that in mind what should i get. I'll be doing games and maybe dvd authoring.
