well guys ive been sitting around for the last few years upgrading very slowly to where i wanted to be.i finally got my CC paid of so i decided to splurge a little bit and build a new system the following is what i purchased today. this is my first board i have owned thats not a DFI...looking at this bios is like reading another language i opted for the i7 860 because i5 is pointless when u already had a quad. awesome memory GSKILL RIPJAWS DDR3 2000!!! sweet! the board outside the box...sexy!! SEXY...what else can i say my overclock so far....i havent even started to tweak yet..
