I'm gonna get the case first, as this will drop my temps as my current case is horrible. Then i will be able to get a ATX board. (current case only takes mATX)

Its just a matter of being patient and saving up.
the Tt Armour is a great case and has great airflow
it will drop your temps especially if you have a small case at the moment

I have got both 3700+ and opty146 both clock to 3gig on an asus a8n-sli deluxe ( which can post at 330 mhz fsb ) Both have been folding 24/7 since xmas with amazing results in the folding comp .Either chip would make a good buy.....I dont think it,s time to upgrade to dual core yet there,s just not enough proggies to take advantage ,The only thing that i am considering at the moment is conroe because of the benchies but im sceptical on that one will wait to see some user feedback first
