    Phenom II core for core will be just as powerful as the i7, and they really optimize DDR2 to make it operate very well. The i7 is just bleeding edge and not TERRIBLY expensive, but it still is like a few car payments, etc etc.

    I'm not the software police but just be careful k? Just some cautious advice from a friend to a friend. . . .


    e8400 would be night and day for you. Decent choice on the board, but why not just the P5Q Pro to save a lil $$?
