ive often felt the same way but who knows..I can't afford to be on the cutting edge. I'm just a teenager with a plan to build a nicer gaming rig. I dont really care as long as i can play doom 3 and hl2 with 80 fps.

eeeeek I starting to abandon the idea of my opty 165 dc.... I think I like the ease of buying a 150 and oc it to 3GHz in the blink of eye with a HTT of 250 and multi of 12x. Someone correct me if im wrong in my thinking. A 3GHz single core would be better than a DC 2.75GHz for the next few years as far as gaming? Would I notice a huge difference in a 250mhz increase? would it be more valuable than the dual core?
