and for that price diffrence its a nobrainer!
even you still can get the price diffrence lower then the $100!!!
but i dont do your homework anymore!
nevermind... good luck with your build
one more question... do you stick with the stock cooler of the Q6600...????????
Its not that the old technology, is good, and I completely hear you out on the core i7 being the new tech, Its that we are barley able to scrounge up the cash for what he had now. I added it up, from what we had (no card) with 4GB...vs going the cheapest i7/mobo/ram, it was still $100 more, now yes we can downgrade the 6600 ram to the same price to, and we would still be around $50 more expensive. But there is no point to downgrade what we have. Were still have not completed the build as we are about $2-300 short with the case, vista, and a dvd drive, which we are going to take like a week or two to scrounge up the $.
Yes the stock cooler for now
and we will get a 120 rifle cooler and over clock from there.
Thanks for posting(arguing), and making my day interesting
