It has been awhile since I have posted. I have been an AMD fan since the Pentium days and the let down I had with it, yet all I got was let downs each and every time... Like when I picked up my Phenom 2 X4 940 BE back in 2008, had I went Intel than I would still be happy with the 920. Now, I have to upgrade to get the snappiness back, although I would probably still want something new anyway Anyway, a bunch of BS to get to the point. This is what I am looking at. Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271 Processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072 RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233202 My budget is kind of non-existent, and this seems like a good choice. The only thing I am really not confident is the RAM, mainly jumping on it becasue there is a $15 discount for combining the 2500K. It has only 14 Reviews and a semi high CL9. How much of a difference would I notice with CL9 vs CL7? Does it really make a difference if I only plan on taking the CPU to 4.5? Things to note: Drives are 2 Samsung 1TB Spinpoint F3's and 2 WD Caviar 250GB. GFX Card is an AMD 6950 with unlocked something but the stock Clocks and Voltage. Cooler is a Core Contact Freezer (re-using my current). PC is for Web Browsing, Gaming, and Movies/Music. It is connected to our bedroom TV 1920x1080 Resolution. I think that is all, unless there is other suggestions/questions.
