Just thought all you overclockers should have first rights. As for me....I'm waiting on an upgrade. Kinda saving up for UT2007 lol.

Nice price, anyway. 165 is only ~$160 though.

It's amazing that the 2.6 ghz version (152) is selling for $409.99 and you could get those speeds w/ this $86 steal!!!<br><br>
I feel like I'm at McDonald's dollar menu lol!<br><br>
Opps forgot <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103592" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103592</a> = $409.99<br><br>
Not that this is news to anyone, but still it feels awesome to get around <i>stock</i> speeds for such a deal!!

Similar in specs, but an Opteron, so it's more geared toward servers/workstation. Thus, reliability is supposed to be higher than the Sandy. If you luck out on the stepping, overclockability is close to that of the Sandy.

I wish I bought some good ram when I first built this computer. Anyone think it's worth $300 for me to upgrade?

If you have $300 available, I'd look into selling your current rig for a decent price and get Core 2 Duo. I think you won't be that far off.<br />
<br />
Your current RAM, however, is that brand name?<br />
The high prices work on both ends (meaning that you might get some money for it)

</div>It's Corsair ValueSelect, it can run to about 2500mhz without a divider, and keeping 'tight' timings of 2.5-3-3-6.<br />

Sideburns, dividers slow down the system usually though, right?

Whether dividers slow your system down, depends on the gain achieved in your CPU overclock. If a divider gets you a good boost in CPU speed, it's definately worth it!

Hehe, I'll be getting a opteron soon, and then just get a nice high end directx9 video card and run all the games I like on max settings. Hehe, I love being a year or two behind in the technologies, Saves me money <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />
