The system Ridlyn made for you looks really good. That CPU overclocks like there's no tomorrow. Also that Mobo is great. That would be a kick *** system

Not necessarily. They have been out a while. Some of the later weeks, like week 50 still do good, but now they are starting to hit around 2.6-2.7GHz most of the time instead of 2.8+ which it had been doing. Which don't get me wrong, that is still a big OC and all. I think mines maxing out at around 2.656GHz because one core needs a lot of Vcore to be stable. Too much

Why would you change it to an x850xt, thats a bad decision. I never seen that ram so go ahead and change that but if you buy an x850xt instead of a 7900gt ur making a big mistake. If you must go ati, then get this card.

What? Heck no man, the x850xt is A LOT worse than the 7900 gt. It doesnt even have SM3.0 and is old.

im sure he meant well, you did say you were on a budget of 1.5k so with the 300$ wc setup and the other things then i dont think the gfx card is a bad choice.
