Just trying to have some fun during this long boring day. Honestly I don't care if I get beat out in posting just thought it was funny how you post jut before me nearly the same suggestions. Your absolutely correct about giving advice that is first and foremost but we gotta have some fun every now and again

From what I have read there is not that big of a difference between and OC e6420 and an OC e6600. They both OC to approximately 3.5, so I personally don't see the need to spend the extra $50 when it can be used elsewhere.

sounds like I can stop worrying about not getting the e6700 then... Just feels wierd when the CPU is cheaper than the mainboard, but I really want those heatpipes and the "bling" factor of the striker though.

what about raptors in RAID? guess that would be an overkill just like getting 4 gb of ram? cus a guy on an other forum recommended increasing the ram to 4 gigs as 2 would bottleneck the system.

No worries. I was thinking the same when I was getting ready. If you are not concerned with SLI than get this board for crazy OC on the 6420 and with an aftermarket cooler (tuniq tower, artic freezer pro 7) you will get very good OC on that CPU.

No need to get 4gb RAM unless you are doing CAD or Video Encoding and such. 2GB of that GSKILL HZ RAM will do more than enough for gaming.

As for the Raptors in RAID. Complete overkill. Just save alot of money and get the 2 Seagate 250 or 320gb SATA drives and RAID them its about equal to 1 Raptor and gives you 2-3 times or more storage.

kk, will have to read up on what RAID is all about.

b1gapl told me to get an EVGA instead, but isn't the 8800gtx pretty much the same regardless of the different brands? just different clock speeds and cooling systems?

EDIT

What about DirectX10 Crysis on 1600x1200 or 1280x1024 with all the goodies on max?
