What are the Gigabyte DS3 mobo's going for there? There about $150 in the states and overclock like mad. Just no Xfire/SLI support, but that is not a concern for me.

Just a thought.

Well there is the S3 of gigabyte, but its chipset is 945P, which only supports DDR2 667Mhz, and I already bought 800Mhz so no go for me, the DS3 is 246$s here... no money for that..

Why would anyone want an entry level board when there overclocking??? Few options and almost no reviews on them boards... Besides it will be cheaper overall to go AM2 than Conroe if you allready have DDR2 RAM if ya ask me... We don't really need the power of Conroe just yet, and when we do there will be something else that beats it into the ground.

I had the chance to play with this thing a bit today. It seems to be a pretty good chip

E6400 | 3.7GHz
DS3
OCZ Plat. PC6400 | DDR2-926 | 4-5-4-15
vdimm | 2.2
vcore | 1.55

Personally, I'd take a stock E6300 over a watercooled/oc'd 3800 ANY day, but to each his own...

If you want to OC the E6300, the P5B/E6300/2gb g.skill combo is $550, and would be very good. An equivilent mobo/x2 3800/2gb g.skill combo is $450. $100 more for 2x the speed. On a flexible budget, that's VERY doable.

The AMD vs Intel argument will neve stop lol...

I will agree that Intel has stomped AMD on this note, but we need games that can push these chips to there max to see who can handle the most in games....

Guys, I think you are all wrong, E6400 is Allendale, E6300 IS Conroe, take a look my friend just bought an E6300, here is his CPUz :

It says Codename - Conroe........

That's a result of the speed stepping feature where it lowers the multiplier to 6 while idle. I didn't take the screen shot quick enough

The E6400 has a 8x multi, so full speed is 463 x 8 = 3.7.

If this chip could do 15 sec PI at 2.7, wow, that would really be something
