I would look for cas 4 DDR2 800. It is pretty common any more and you should be able to find some for about the same price.

Also, you should be able to OC that chip WAY further than 2.66Ghz EASILY

I got a Badaxe rev.304 in saturday for my Conroe. My 6600 should come in sometimes next week (maybe). And I cant wait to run SLi on my badaxe with my special drivers i got .

I might just get a 820 and hold off for a Kentsfield, which are the SHIZZIT.

So when I build my new super-computer, should I get a Kentsfield or a Conroe?

Well.... if you're willing to wait (Kentsfield is coming out in early '07), then Kentsfield is the obvious choice.

No, its a Quad-Core desktop processor based on the Core archtiecture.

Woodcrest is the new Xeon. It's Dual Core.

Hmm, maybe I'll just get a Conroe then...

This one's going to be a super-computer, I just got a huge bonus at work.

I'm gunna wait for G80 and Conroe first.
