solid. only thing i would change is the cooler and the hdd. the western digital 7200.11 drives are almost as fast as Raptor drives. and for the cooler get a Xigmatek Rifle s1283. its on par with the TRUE and almost half as much.

ha. yeah i meant the seagate 7200.11 and the e7200 is a superb chip, it can OC to 4.5 on air, or so i've heard. I might be getting one myself soon. and if they don't sell the xigmatek then the vendetta is fine.

Wait I thought you decided on the q6600?

Anyways.. an e7200 is a cut down Wolfdale core (at 2.53ghz and half the cache)
