Does anyone have any idea of an online shop that is still selling a DFI lan Party CFX 3200 mobo, newegg no longer has them on their list, and they have also sold out on all of their low latency ram (except the GeIL) ie 2.2.2.5 so could you please let me know if you see any, ~$180 for the mobo and ~$170 for the ram.

I hate anyone who just bought one of those boards or some of that ram.

Don't. SuperTalent isnt some kind of wonderful company that will produce they best possible modules in every situation. They simply added a truck load of highly binned chips in some of their DDR2 (not even all of them) modules.

South Africa's power supply is prone to some nasty spikes so i want something rated for maximum performance at a low voltage so if the spanner hits the turbine (it actually happened recently and all of Capetown was unpowered for quite some time) my pc will survive. SO i will pay the extra to have something that will survive, you need extra tough stuff if you want it to work here, eskom(the power company) is very good at taking out laptop screens, 2 of my bro's died and a few friends' too. Not sure if i am correct about this but better to err on the side of caution.

That DFI board you mention can be found via Froogle at a few different lesser known vendors. Too bad DFI makes the only AM2 Crossfire board with three PCI slots.

This is kind of a last hail to single core so i am getting the fastest single cpu, fastest ddr1 and best 939 motherboard and maybe an x1950 to be later supplemented with an r600

Nope, still gotta get all the parts, just want to make sure i can get it all at once, and it is likely that i ahve wasted all your time cause i ahve been planning on a new pc for a year already and now when i get back i nedd to get hold of one of my friends who has relatives in america so i can send the parts there so they can send them to SA as newegg does not ship outside the USA. I want my bloody PC!!! Unfortuntely this year i won't get to use it much cause i am taking more subjects than before so i just want it over and done with so i can use a non laggy non shit pc.

have fun, but don't say I didn't worn you, because you will be kicking yourself for not getting dual core-- later on when more multi threaded apps become available with vista

Listen to this person! I am still regretting buying an FX55 two years ago. If I had just gotten an x2 4800, I would not currently be considering a dual core CPU upgrade right now. Dammit, dammit, dammit. :?

I know dual core is the way to go but i am still getting the fx 57, no point trying to argue that against me, but i know dual / multi core is the way to go but i cannot afford a good dual ( i know a crappy dual is better than a good single) core, i spend 7 rand per dollar and i want a top model so i am going for this cpu. 64 bit was the thing when i got my last pc but it did not last, so i might as well go for an fx as it is the only time i will ever get a crack at one. My pc will not last and i know that. Dual core will not last long either it will be replaced by multi core. SMP is only efficient at 100+ processors so dual core apps have limited life like everything else. I am going for the best of the worst.

The only place I can get my parts sent is unfortunately Kentucky. Please don't kill my dream. :(

I am also going to clock the crap out of this thing.

Didn't know that so 4800 here i come, just newegg has none. Ewiz has none. Chiefvalue has none either.

Can't find the damn thing anywhere.

If anyone sees one for about $300 please let me know.

sorry, I wish I had told you this like a month ago when stores still had the x2 4800, but the 4400 isn't bad either (if you can find it)

There's still the option of an Opteron dual core. I think they seem to be more available than their X2 equivalents and mostly seem to be similiarly priced (well, they are in the UK, anyway) as well as being a higher quality cpu.

You could get an Opteron 185 which is the same clock as the FX-60, although it doesn't have the unlocked multiplier, it should overclock well. That being said, I think you would get better value going for a 170 or 175 as they are meant to overclock really well too.
