well now that practically know my setup from my previous posts...do u believe it will perform WELL with the CPU and MB that i have chosen...i am also running 2gb ram on the machine....here is everything:


Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 16X DVD-ROM 52X CD-R 32X CD-RW 52X CD-ROM SATA Combo - OEM

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard - Retail

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

No, that mobo dosent have onboard GFX... Only G33 and G31 have that, not P35.

I would get the e8400, and a samsung spinpoint 320GB hard drive.

Your setup is good and the board will oc w/ no problems. Get an arctic freezer. Cheap and reliable.

Edit: also you could get the E3110 which is in stock and is only 200 dollars and yes it's the same as the 8400 and get the Abit IP35-E

Well from my experience I manage to get my E6750 from (2.66GHz) to 3.44GHz this CPU can go higher but in my case there seems to be like an "strapping" of some sort because I can go no more higher than that not even 1MHz more and the memory too can't go more higher than (860MHz) and I'm using the G.Skill HZ DDR 800, but I heard sometime ago about a forum member here that this happened too to another guy with the same CPU and MOBO (GA-P35-DS3R).

Maybe its me I don't know but what I can tell you is I'm very happy with my purchase by the time this CPU was released back in July.

Now I'm confused..should i just stick with the e6750 and hope for the best =]

or

start looking into other CPU/mobo that can fit my budget...?


ive also heard a lot of compliments about this setup so i'm hoping i don't turn out to be one of the 20 people who gets screwed with a defective setup
