Need a new fan that is only available in Canada through Newegg.ca, but the shipping costs MORE than the fan itself and my tax return is due soon. To make better use of the shipping costs I was thinking of upgrading my CPU as it will only add $1 to my shipping costs.

Do you think my CPU is sufficient or would an upgrade be worth it? This CPU does bottleneck my video card but only very slightly. With the new fan coming, I would be able to overclock to some degree - but not much.

The 720 BE is an excellent chip. It will do you well. The PhII's are faster clock for clock than the PhI's (and their memory controller is much faster somehow), and the extra core will help smooth things up alot in games and multitasking.

Good luck man

I'm seriously considering the upgrade from my sig rig to a 720BE as well. I even visit the store and peer at them through the glass case on occasion, like a sad little kid at the pet store. Maybe wait for another paycheck, maybe go back tomorrow...
