Also, the Phenom II is coming soon. This was a neat article I found where they managed to overclock it to 5.0GHz with Liquid Nitrogen.
I looked around a little bit more and found out its been overclocked to 6.3GHz while still being stable.

Stable while the liquid helium lasted?

On another note, I upgraded my system a bit! I'll probably purchase it tomorrow, unless you protest.

Antec Nine Hundred (Black/Transparent) (Miditower)
Asus P5Q Pro (Moderboard (Intel Socket 775))
