the review was with a guy in i think taiwan(minimal english), and i think he was implying gpu with the IB CPU improved the gpu's capabilities. i had seen a few reviews and benches where graphics are held back greatly by a processor, but only affected a few games by a reasonable amount. 2600k stock w/ gtx-g80 2-way SLI vs 2600k OC'd 4.7ghz w/ gtx-580 2-way SLI. some games improved by 30+ frames. ill post a link if i can find the review and the interview
and i think im gonna go with 2 WD Caviar Black 500gb in Raid 0 for my windows 7 storage of games and 4 Hitachi Deskstar 3tb in Raid 10 for my media and music. and a 120gb OCZ Vertex 3 for my OSs
