Honestly, you'd be better off with a Q6600. I truly do hate to say it, as my multiple AMD systems have served me well, but you'd be paying more for less.

Retail Q6600 - $215
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

Retail Lanparty DK P35 - $130

I figured someone wouldn't listen to me. Ok it's been noted I have other CPU options too. Please let it be the last time.

Well you wanted honest advice, and it did appear that you were set on a Phenom...why I don't know. Just trying to help.

No, no crossfire for me but it was a logical assumption. I'm up for whatever is best for the price. I heard that if you go up to 1600x1000 res ( i know, it's not the 'exact' res ) that the 3870 beats out the GT.
