Pro, home doesn't support dual core processors.

10 years of overclocking!

You could save a lot of money and get a 4400+ and overclock it to 2.6 GHz.

The MSI Neo4 F and DFI LANParty mobos are both good, though the MSI is a little easier to deal with. Both are great overclockers. However I see you want SLI.... why would you do that? Get a Crossfire board and get a 1900XT. Less money than 2 GTs, and overclocked can outperform a 7800 GTX 512.


Good ram choice, though.
the difference is, the fx-60 supports multithreading!

it supported my opti 170 just fine= just required an update when i put it in there

as far as raid goes i guess its up to you but i wouldnt give up my raptors in raid 0 now that i have it running, just back up your data (ive lost hdds in both configs and it didnt matter how it was set up i still lost it)

also take a look around at other mobos as well, the new asus boards can oc very well and performance wise compete with dfi, granted for the super extreme ocer dfi is thw way to go i guess but there are other good boards out there that are much more stable

im kind of partial to asus- the first dfi i got died 2 hours after loading windows and all my programs and i had to rma it, ive never had a prob with my asus boards and i had a abit that did well just didnt oc worth anything

was that at stock speeds 2.8>2.6 and comparing the two at running single ap benches ofcourse the faster one will win but you would have to compare them running two of the same benches at the same time and see who performs better

humm for me i think an asus mobo would be better!!
cos you already have a fx-60 and may be you will overclock it to like 3.2 ??
and asus is much more stable than dfi from my personal experiance (i use to have an asus a8n de)
but overclock verywell and the only reason to go with dfi is extream overclocking both the cpu and memory!!
asus will do the job and it will be more stable

Of course you'll have to reformat any disk failing. However raid 0 doubles the probability to happen the worst.

Disk manufacturers state the estimated time before failure of a disk, for example, 40000 hours. This means you have a prob 1/40000 for the disk to fail. Two disks in raid 0 mean you got twice this prob: (1/40000)*(1/40000) = 2/40000 = 1/20000.

It's not a dramatic number, I personally think raid 0 is worth the risk. Only be sure to keep important files backed up somwhere else.
