CPU sucks? Now that's where fanboyism comes into play. I could shut down 2 of the cores of my PII and still have more processing power than your e8400. you shouldn't let brand loyalty effect your ratings. Sure I admit the Phenom II is not as powerful as an i7, but it holds it's own with Core 2 Quads at the same clock speed. I'll admit 2 monitors are better than one though.
