Okay so I priced some of this stuff out and it seems like I could make the switch.
A couple quick questions... I've never before used Intel, is there anything else I would need to change besides mobo/cpu?
Equally, is there anything special I'd need to do with my HD's, or just throw the mobo/cpu in there and fire it up? Obviously I'd uninstall the Gigabyte drivers, etc, first.
You should not need to change any of your other hardware. If you need any advice on what Intel hardware to pick then just post your budget and we can help you out.
