Can someone show me a Single-Core Rig to bust Oblivion? - Page 6

The gigabyte s2 you mean? It's based on the Intel 945 chipset, which is not specifically designed for Core 2 Duo, while the P965 Express is designed from the ground up for Core 2 Duo. The S2 will probably treat you well, but just don't expect any stellar overclocking with it.

S3 it is...Okay, so that total is now about $450. Which would put my PC up to these specs:

Intel C2D E6300 1.86GHz
Gigabyte S3 965 Chipset
1Gb DDR2 533 PNY Ram
160Gb Samsung Hard Drive
Dynex Mid Tower 350watt PSU
Windows XP PRO w/ SP2

Not bad...Then after Christmas I can buy a Video Card and New PSU....I WIN!!!
