    I just did a very similar upgrade. Check out my specs. :D

    Grab yourself an SSD if you can and get ready to be dumbfounded by the speed.

    SSD speed AND CPU speed. Double the fun :p
    I was baffled how fast Photoshop starts with an SSD.

    What's this about SB prices dropping? I hadn't seen that anywhere.

    I'm especially curious because I'm going to the Micro Center in Houston in a few days and I had intended to pick up an i5.

    Also, (and not to hijack your thread) does anyone know if Micro Center is still running the $XX off any SB motherboard deal with purchase of SB CPU deal?

    Finally, congratulations on your purchase! I hope everything works flawlessly for you.
    Jetster says thanks.
