I'm curious. It would be a nice upgrade for my by then 2 year old fx-53 @ 2.8 ghz :)

going from 2.8Ghz to 2.667Ghz is not what I call "an upgrade" :p

it's already proven that the A64's does not need a lot more bandwidth to perform better; it's not like AXP or P4 where higher FSB and lower multi gave large performance increases.

you break down all my future upgrades!
you save me money and I don't like to save money :)
I'll stick to my cpu until 30 % speed gain irwa.
