The high prices work on both ends (meaning that you might get some money for it)
It's Corsair ValueSelect, it can run to about 2500mhz without a divider, and keeping 'tight' timings of 2.5-3-3-6.

Sideburns, dividers slow down the system usually though, right?

Whether dividers slow your system down, depends on the gain achieved in your CPU overclock. If a divider gets you a good boost in CPU speed, it's definately worth it!

Hehe, I'll be getting a opteron soon, and then just get a nice high end directx9 video card and run all the games I like on max settings. Hehe, I love being a year or two behind in the technologies, Saves me money
