Not quite, but it's pretty even between a heavily clocked PhenomII x4 (such as the 4Ghz quad unlocked 555BE in my previous rig) and an i3, which is pretty telling if you ask me. Going z68 and i3 is the perfect solution.
OP: when he has 60-80 bucks spare, pick up a small SSD and pop that sucker in there with the Intel Smart Response turned on, for maximum speed boostage.

Does anyone know if it is like Fry's?
50% of all parts at Frys are garbage. The prices are not comparable to online retailers.
The stores are BIG, Dirty, Disorganized, and the Salesmen, oh the salesman are worthless when it comes to their information.

Last I looked there is a MC in Tustin,which is Orange County. Orange County is thought of as So Cal.

Crossfire graphics biggrin.gif I think, I read somewhere that if you have a Llano CPU and an AMD GPU you can crossfire them.
