OK I am looking at changing one pice of hardware and well I was thinking of this mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...Description=ASUS+Maximus+II+Formula&x=16&y=35 Or this cpu . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115041 Reasons for the mobo change is Massive V-Drop ( really the only grip I have with this mobo at all ) . Reason for changing CPU well the Q6600 is getting old and I see that the Q9550 is a much faster and smaller die and a true Quad core and well new all around . V-Drop on mobo will not be as big a deal as with the Q6600 power hog . So what would you do if you only had one thing you could change and these where the only reason's ?
