Well, Before I looked at his links I would have said because he didn't want to change motherboard. (Because Thats why I didn't).

I would be interested to see in an depth study between preformence increase compared to money spent for situations such as these.
For example, would it had/have been worth it for me to Buy new ram new mobo just for the C2D or would it have been more cost efficent for me to do what I did. Which is just Upgrade the Proc. No new motherboard or RAM.
I only spent 235 for this upgrade from a Winchester 3200+. And I am quite Happy with it. I will see how far I can OC this once the Burn in time is complete.
