Indecision.  I'm wondering if it's worth it to tear my Celeron
system out of my studio and install my 64-X2 system in its place.
I haven't actually used the X2 box for anything but sound file
editing yet.  I've been predicting problems based on some of the
postings I've seen about those Athlon 64-X2 CPUs.  I can always
put the Celeron system back into music service if the X2 doesn't
work.  But, I'd rather avoid that whole ordeal, if the reality is
that it just won't work yet.
