I've been an AMD enthusiest for many years. Simply i'd never purchase an intel system of any kind.

I know that it took AMD quite a while to bring out the AM2 chipset for support of DDR2. I know that DDR3 is on the rise and modules of up to PC3- 15000. That's extreme performance. Whats the possibility of AMD bringing a chipset that would allow for the DDR3 capabilities? I realized that there simply wasn't a need for the high end DDR2 frequencies but with all the advancements in technology it might be a need for the extreme speeds of DDR3. Simply put what i wouldn't give to see a dual socket (quad-core FX when its available) with support of the ever so fast DDR3. I'd be the first in line to purchase such a monster. Then you could really blow intel out of the water again with the new platform. Make sure it has SLI capabilities. Heck I'm perspiring just thinking about it. haha!
