right now the phenom is bust, in order to fix the errata you have to install a bios update that reduces performance by 5% - 50%! and the am2+ platform offers no real benefits other than pci-e 2.0.
i'm a huge amd fan (overclocking... duh), but i'm waiting for the am3 platform before i use amd again. they are just having too many problems right now.
i totally agree ^
