I own a Phenom II X4 940 3.0 ghz that was released January 8, 2009 and I can still play almost any game on highest settings. So you should be set with the AMD cpu for 4-5 years assuming you aren't doing much more then gaming.  Heck my 8 year old work laptop can still games @ medium settings. 



Dude... get some watercooling and overclock that schiit!
My dad managed to get his X4 940 to 4ghz @_@

I wish that were the case. Many games are leaning towards high CPU, low GPU.
HOWEVER, I do a lot of photoshop. Though I'm sad I didn't get the performance boost I wanted (most games only use 4 cores), I'm happy that my purchase will be something useful for life use.

Here's my secondary/travelling rig:

It's Samsung NP-N210 netbook with 2Gb ram and 120gb SSD with "vanilla" Windows 7 Starter.
Accessories are cheap Bluetooth 3.0 mouse and FiiO E10 headphone amp. Everything fits into Targus Ecosmart Spruce netbook case 10.2.
Compact, lightweight and powerful enough for my purposes.

I really like this. I just pulled out my Aspire One netbook, doing a clean install to set it up as a "Soundbook". Now I just need a portable amp/dac.

Well personally I can recommend FiiO's. They are a bang-for-a-buck dac/amps. Of course there are other makers but I don't have first hand experience other than FiiO.

I also use an Aspire One as a music station. Makes a nice traveling companion for the vali.

Aaron,

 

Love the PSBs!. I have a pair of Alpha B1s (which, oddly enough,the PSB website no longer lists as a current Alpha speaker) driven by an NAD C356BEE integrated. Cans are the AT ATH-M50 and the AKG K701 white.

 

Also need to comment on how neat and tidy everything looks...even the cables.
