Cool Phenom 9500 and MSI K92A-CF-F

I hope I will not be displeased with this experiment! Both the Phenom and Mobo cost $317 shipped. Will I regret this? For $125 more I could have gone with Intel and Q6600. Go ahead....say I told you so! I am fully aware of the fact that Intel blows this Phenom out of the water. However, I like supporting AMD for competition issues. I am currently An E6700 on a gaming machine and a AMD 6000+ on my workhorse. I do recording studio wave editing on the AMD and it has been great. However, I wanted the Quad for additional CPU muscle. I have never purchased an MSI mobo eihter so I'm pretty nervous.
