    EDIT: Already paid on processor, will be awaiting chip, evaluation of chip then, and when my rig is completely together in a month or two I'll evaluate the chip in full. Thank you everyone who offered both products and advice.

    be careful of pre-overclocked chips. If your system is not setup identical to it, it may not work well if at all. (previous experience)

    960t is a good chip though. Make sure your Ram is top notch or else OCing the Chip will be nerfed by Memory bandwidth.

    Im having the problem with my FX-8120 and RAM bandwidth.

    Yeah going with amd performance RAM DDR3-1600 mhz CAS 8.

    and as far as it's running, I'll have crossed fingers for now I think.

    Will be going with an Asrock 990FX Fatal1ty professional mobo most likely.

    You do know that both Chicago and Westmont MicroCenters have the 960T in stock for $89.99.
     
    Norton says thanks.

    Since you are going to pick up a pretty good OCing board, you can as well try out the Phenom II X4 830 and OC the crap out of it. $50 for a quad core, u can't beat it.

    Unfortunately I'm in the Chicago geographic region, but am considerably a ways away from Chicago itself. Perhaps it would have been better to say the northern half of illinois. And I don't have a car so... yeah. Stuck within biking distance sadly. 65 miles is not biking distance.
    Still, my current deal I at least know OC's decently and that it does unlock to an x6, so I'll be content with it I would figure.

    65miles is biking distance. I do 35miles in 1.5hrs on my Trek 1.2 ($740, 27speed). I'm sure a couple hours here and there would be good for most of us pc nutz ^_^

    My bike is an 8 year old, $75 Walmart special 15 speed.
    Yeahno. Although I know I could bike it... my bicycle I'm not so sure about. Plus, it's $15 to wait a bit longer, have it guaranteed it will unlock and overclock decently, it gets shipped to my house without having me take a risk of getting stranded with a broken bike, and it's a 1-3 year solution at most, after which it will be upgraded to Steamroller if it comes to AM3+, otherwise I'll be getting the best Piledriver 8-core I can when I feel I should upgrade my CPU. Which is whenever I both have the money and I have a reason to upgrade XD.
    And I walk two hours a day when I'm off work, and most of the time while I've been working recently it's been so slow I powerwalk laps. Not quite such an issue for me there. :laugh:

    Edit: Paid now, and thank you everyone who offered both products and advice.
