Building a new PC

I agree, that's what I did. I'm not disappointed. I used an ABIT AB9pro though. Instead of the gigabyte ds3. The abit's seem to not get steadily as high of overclocks as the gigabytes lately. Tomshardware used a gigabyte ds3 for the graph I have pictured.

Both have realtek sound just to warn anyone. Actually all new intel chipsets do. Asus, Abit, Gigabyte, MSI, it doesn't matter. Many nvidia chipsets have realtek as well. The one I showed a pic of has realtek in a nforce570 chipset.

The 4 meg cache in the more expensive conroes makes less than a 5% performance improvement. Easily negated by 5% more clock than a 4meg version.
