okay, then i think you should go for the e8500 (if those arent out, then the e8400)... a 780i, 1 9800gx2, (or 2 9800gtx's if affordable), and then just some nice ddr1066, more than likely some crucial ballistix tracers.. haha jsut to show off some pretty led's

Well lets start with the processor:

Dual-Core or Quad-Core? Which one scores and overclocks better?

No offence, but if you are going to start an "OC team" it seems like you would know a lot about the subject before diving into it...

You don't see to many racecar drivers out there that don't know what a car is :P


Anyway, I'm pretty sure dual-cores OC better. I am probably wrong though

dual cores oc better, quad cores (depending on applications) scores better

what applications will you be running.. that all depends if they're multithreaded or not
