lol peter...
its not like "War and Peace" or anything.
but good job sora, very informative. if the new builders actually take the time to read it.
may cut down on the, "what should i buy" questions that we see every day.
now we just need to make a general AMD (i dont have time, maybe i should make time...) and Intel overclocking guide, to maybe cut down on the, "how do i oc my AMD ****+?"
just got one of those today.

Really well done, it is really informative and rational, yet easy to understand. I should have read that before I bought my comp but it would have turned out the same anyway probably. It took me just under 20 minutes to read btw.
