Nope

Looks like only triple or quad core Phenoms.

Processor?

I'm thinking that my choice of processor might be a poor one. I could get a Phenom for not too much more. The only thing is that I've heard they run very hot... Any ideas on the processor?

Don't like waiting... lol

I see what you're saying but even by the summer, the AM3 tech (mobo, ram, and cpu) are still going to be in the premium price range... i can't see its value (price per performance) really being worth it.

**Critique My Quiet Cheap Gaming HTPC Build**

Hey, so this is my first time building an AMD machine and was looking for any input on making it better. I'm trying to make a somewhat cheap and quiet gaming htpc. I want to be able to upgrade later (CPU, another HD 4850 and maybe more memory) so that I will have a solid machine for the next 3-5 yea...
