Touche, my good man. Your right my bad. My memory isn't as good as it used to be. I thought the t-bird was part of the athlon 64 family. I actually had a t-bird setup then went to an athlon x2 with the 939 chipset if I remember correctly. Then after that I went intel and haven't switched back.

If amd releases a better processor next year i'll go with them. I have no brand loyalty. It's the same with gpu's I switch between nvidia and amd based on who's got better performance and features at the time. Right now intel is way ahead for gaming. I'm not here to bash amd but it's hardly a ringing endorsement that they had the fastest processors 6-7 years ago.

At any rate I still wouldn't touch an amd system today.
