I'm considering upgrading to Conroe. First of all, would you guys recommend this, or not? I would like to get a dual core as more programs are becoming dual threaded. Especially on the verge of vista. I was considering at first just getting a 939 x2. However if I have to spend extra money (on top of what I make from selling some of my current parts), it'd be more worth while to buy a Conroe. SO Which motherboard would you recommend. I have read on DFI-Street that there will eventually be LanPart boards out with Conroe support, so for now I'd just like to get a temperary motherboard. Something in the $50 range. All it needs to do is support SATA RAID 0 and be able to post at stock speeds. Shouldn't be hard. Next, DDR2 RAM. I have no idea what kind of timings are good for what clocks with DDR2. I just started getting to know what was good with DDR1. So I'm pretty much in the dark about this. I want overclocking ram for sure. 2x1gb. The CPU I already have picked out, I'll just go with an E6300. Thanks for helping out an Intel n00bz0rz guys. Oh yeah, anybody want to buy my CPU/MOBO/RAM if this goes through?
