just to let u no IC7 can't be fit with 3.6 cuz 3.6 is a socket LGA775 and IC7 is socket 478 but if you were to get socket 478 i suggest IC7 Max3 and for socket LGA775 i suggest abit duramax

and if you go to 775, you need to buy a new cpu and video card, unless you can find one of the mobos that has pci-E and agp slots, i saw one before, but cant remember where, and its was like $476 i think lol

There's 865 chipset mobos w/ LGA775, DDR and AGP, and one 875 chipset board by DFI. If you're going to an LGA775 CPU, then you will want to look into one of these. If you are sticking with s478, then either motherboard will perform comparably.

if you go for the 3.4,the ABIT IS7 is a very good buy (for90$), but the IC7 is also a very good buy for 130 or so
