Yah I'm more of a gamer than a hardware enthusiast so I'm holding off on the overclocking (for now ). As long as stock performance does the trick for bad company 2 its all good.

Good choice in case! And well the rest of it too. Just need a Cpu heatsink, a ssd and a good sound card and your all set!

Yes I do plan on overclocking the vapor-x. It comes factory overclocked by a measely 10mhz (pfffft) But I hear you can get them up to 945 stable. I'll see what I can do, but so far I just have these shiny parts just sitting around waiting for a motherboard

If that 955 comes with the same cooler that my 940 came with, the copper heatpipe one, then you should be able to OC a little just fine. Hell you should be about to hit 3.6GHz with just chaning the multiplier. That's all I did, and I couldn't be happier, faster and great temps.
