Excuse me I stand corrected, I was told on AIM otherwise.

If you plan on that, then I would say go winchester, the 90nm will better suite your needs.

His aim persona and his forum persona are very different. Example: He posts a topic asking whether he should upgrade his video card. When I suggest a video card with him on aim he says that he not going to get another video card since his current one cost $400. He would hear nothing of it.

Yeah he does change his mind alot and post alot of questions.

If your going to overclock get whinchester

If your not going to overclock and newcastle and whinchester are the same price, get whinchester.

Now, i know you are going to overclock (you cannot deny it) so a whinchester would be better, since they often and most likely will hit fx-55 speeds (without the extra cache)

then find a store near you that stocks them! don't come complaining that you can't find what you want if you are unwilling to buy online.
