check out the review. it may be only 128 bit but it is still doing pretty well in games and benchies.

edit: you could always go nvidia and fold like crazy

that comes with a back plate, no need to order separate.

ur system is very similar to mine, same CPU/mobo. i got 2 gb of Gskill and i agree to stay with Gskill. i have had patriot before and its good ram, but it requires more power to do the listed timings.

Yeah, caught that yesterday but didn't change my first post. I had to look over the pictures on Newegg.

Let's say I swing for the 720BE.. I would only need DDR2 800, but would I benefit a lot more with the DDR2 1066?

there isnt a big diff between the 2. there would be a little more in the 1066 on benchmarks, but in real apps, u wont notice much.

and 800/1066 is the same price

Hmm... That build that mastertrixster linked got me thinking... Both are about the same price, which surprised me. I didn't know anyone would be able to find a better list than the one I posted. I would be able say I have a dragon powering my rig. Well not really a quad per se, but a quad at heart. Call it the "baby dragon"? Or tiny infant sized cute cuddly not breathing fire yet dragon?

Oh cmon you try comparing the PH 2s and the i7s?

The tri cores run very cool for example
