Not at all. The Phenom IIs stack up between the 45nm Core 2s and Nehalem i5/i7s, depending on the application. On average though, the performance is in between those two tiers. For quad-core optimized programs, the Phenom IIs seem to fall behind the Nehalems a bit, but are faster than the 45nm Core 2s in most cases.

Seeing as how a 45nm C2Q is already an upgrade from and faster clock-for-clock than his 65nm C2Q, the Phenom II should already give him a nice performance boost at stock.

first post from a lurking newb.

I am looking into getting pretty much the same setup.
I was eyeing up the ASUS M4A79XTD also. 84 bucks seemed to be a pretty awesome deal.

Unfortunately newegg sold out of them just before i tried to check out.
