umm the intel penryn are coming too with new dual-core and quad-core 45nm architecture and the fact these 45nm chips apparently run 10C or so cooler that means OC time!!!

Example: 45nm Intelģ quad core processor (12MB cache,3.33GHz, 1333MHz FSB

but theres more i think 8 more

I know they're the same but which has an advantage? Customer support,design,etc.

I see more people buying the xfx 8800 ultra
i bought my ultra from XFX..same warranty as EVGA

and it came with Lost Planet for free

i've got it at 685/2300 right now and its completely stable no artifacts or anything.
