Yea, I know! I actually looked into getting into GPU folding, but there apparently isn't a lot of challenge to clocking a graphics card and makin' it run. Where's the thrill! I enjoy clocking a processor and multiple BSOD's and all the other headaches that go along with it. That's what makes it fun! I've spent considerable and enjoyable time clocking my 9550. Proof of that is in my position in Wildcard. So now I have three choices: stay with my 9550 and know I'm not gonna' keep up, buy a graphics card and get into GPU folding, or set up a new rig and spend lots of time clocking it to the max and sweating over it and getting up in the middle of the night to make sure all is well. I choose the latter! At least right now. I'm still tryin' to get the components at a decent price, so that may change. But if I have it my way I WILL go the i5-760 route.
