it performs better than the 9800gtx in most games

You could get this one for a few more bucks. It has better cooling

60$ bux for an e4500 vs $70 for an e2180, i figured i would spend an extra $10 on this for now. ill be upgrading to a quad in the near future anyways once i get all this stuff and am settled for a bit. i like the heat pipes on that mobo, i like it a lot.
