What an awesome deal.

:/

and nosboost if you are going for a X38/X48 mobo I recommend either one of these two:

Newegg.com - DFI LP LT X48-T2R LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - ASUS P5E Deluxe LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards


The DFI looks crazy and is a very good OCer...except I have heard that it's the hardest DFI board out there to clock. A 50yr old dude with 15 years of OCing experience was even utterly confused by it and recommended against it.

and the P5E is a great board, mine has done 525fsb so far and I have the older X38 chipset. Very easy to OC as well.

I'd go for the DFI as well, it may be difficult to clock...but it's sex.


and I'm sure with a little patience you will get the hang of it
