Everyone seems to have AMDs, but intel actually seems to do this better. I specifically remeber the securing plate overlapping the edges of the die, but I'll be careful. BTW, I am NOT an Intel fanboy. I got what I have because I wanted PCI-E,a nd at the time only intel chipsets had it. After seeing my friends 3400+ DOUBLE my cpu score in Aquamark...

AGP won\'t fit in PCI-E... unless you use a really good hammer. ~Trotter

Seems to do what better? Putting in CPUs!?

Pretty easy to lift a lever and drop it in to me
