But since you are upgrading both CPU and Board, how about Intel? (not that I'm forcing this upon you.. if anything I'm glad we still have an AMD supporter)
i was going to go with the i7, but some pennies didnt fall my way @ work.
thus, i came up with an idea. get the 940. but i planned on doing it in 2 stages.

first, get a mobo ready for 140w, and a new chip to put in it (7750 is pretty cheap, so not much of a loss here), grab a new copy of vista and put the new stuff together.
sell the m2n-e + x2 6400 as a combo (maybe get $100 for both?)
a few months done the road or when ever i have the pennies, grab the 940
and plug it in.

that was my plan, i hope it follows thru for me.

i would be happy with a working pII 940 system in a few months.
