ok;
intel 680i or amd 680a?
Apples and Oranges.
will amd have a single cpu socket F/L mobo?
No point to it. For single cpu just get the fastest X2/Opty AM2, or put just one FX70-74 in a dual proc mobo.
Well, actually just get an Intel Conroe.
get intel now or wait for amd?
Yes.
If you need a new rig now, get an Intel.
If you don't need a new rig now, then waiting will always yield either more performance, cheaper parts, or both. Whether that means Intel or AMD down the road remains to be seen.
