If this is anything to go by, gaming increases are negligible

OH wow. lol. It shows how good intel was. I only paid $150 for that chip back a while ago. It still holds fairly well against even the bulldozer stuff.

I am playing with the phenom and it is not that much quicker than the e8400.

I found a deal on a 1366 board cheap and will picking it up Thursday. I just need to find a good cpu. I don't see any for sale thought. mad.gif

It is exactly even 14 for 1366 vs 14 for sandy/ivy.
