I agree with you about the Rich Text Editor. I think the whole thing with this editor is probably my biggest complaint, especially with not being able to switch between editors on the fly without losing my post. I have other complaints, but I'm keeping them to myself for now.
Glad your system is fine, and that sounds really awesome! I'd ask more but ToS and stuff. It's funny what we can reflect on/in, sometimes it's just the smallest stuff
There's a link in my sig that covers most of the basics of the new platform. Check it out. It's grown on me over time, I still miss the old one at times and do the odd double post. I'd switch over to the RTF if my spell checked worked correctly (always one and only one option on right click: paste) I'd learn to transition to it. Whoops, it's worth dealing to have fun with the community though
If you haven't used HT in 3-4 years, you wont need to in 3-4 years. If your really going to keep your computer that long, you need more physical cores (3930K) than virtual, and you get 4 more threads total. 4c/4t SB/IB will also be perfect for longevitiy, they both overclock well, and IB will have about a 300mhz gain on IB. IB gets very hot with "normal" voltages that SB could take, though, so that's something to be wary of, from what I've seen, the temp doesn't start going crazy till 4.5-4,7+.
I wanted to get a 3930K, intel was having and amazing sale for $200, but I'll have to wait till the winter sale instead, and they'll prolly offer IB, when I wanted SB-E and the gene-z.
