Here in my country there are not a lot of choices but when it comes to time, i will do a lot of research and probably start a thread here and decide which combo is the best.

You will be very happy learning about overclocking with your 955BE. They are great starter cpu's. How about after you get a good stable 3.8 (or even 3.6) you do some smp (this meand cpu) folding for the team we have here at OCN? it is a great club.
I was folding for some time in the past but after i saw how crappy my q8400 was i stopper. I may consider it again...

I know that. To pay +20 Euros for a thing that I can do in 5 seconds? (The Multiplier)

I really am happy for finding that cpu at such a good price... I saw some benchmarks on HWBOT with the 955 @ 4Ghz and my GPU @ Exactly the same clocks as mine, and i saw that i will get a HUGE Boost.

So, to conclude, the C3 955 BE is the best choice...
Thank you all very much for your help. Rep ++
