Smart....wait until the Nvidia 6XX series chipset before the C2D. You are golden right now.

Golden means, you are fine with your current system. If you upgrade to the P5N32 SLI SE Premium Nvidia 590 chipset, you will be seriously constrained by the memory bus. The C2D demands a fast memory bus to keep up with it's crazy speed. I would wait until the Nvidia 6XX series of chipsets come out. Much imporved memory bandwidth.

It's supposed to support PC6400 out of the box (800Mhz RAM) So, it should be able to go up to PC8000 pretty easily. Wait until the 6XX is available. Because RAM is artificially high priced right now. The 6600 is a good price for performance mix. It's my favorite.

There is another option. What resolution is your monitor? Are you using more than one monitor? Are you playing games mostly with that system? Or are you doing Something complex like 3D CAD?

You could possibly get a better system with the following:

ASUS P5B deluxe motherboard 200$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131045

GSKill PC8500 "black model" 500$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231086

E6600 Conroe = 300$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115003

You can only run one video card on the P5B. But, at 1280X1024, who cares. You will have a screaming CPU and memory system. Doing next generation physics processing in software will greatly benefit from that.

NOW...You have spent 1000$ and have a screaming single GPU system. Wait 4 months or so, and either replace your motherboard with a Nvidia 6XX system

ORRRRRR!!! Get a single 8800GTX from Nvidia for about 600$. New PSU (750watts) for 200$ and you are at 1700$ total. And all you had to do was swap out your video card at that point. Now you are DirectX 10 compliant. IMHO: This is the way to go.

You have ALOT of options. Don't fence yourself into SLI like I did. I REGRET it.

Or get a 975X-based motherboard, keep both your cards and run SLI with the modded drivers, and sell them when DX10 hits.

That too...

Bump down the RAM to PC8000 when you get the 975X MoBo. No point going higher.

Just remember, there is no guarantee the modded drivers will work. They are custom compiled and not backed by the manufacturer.

No it doesn't!, all you need is DDR2 533 to run at a 1:1 ratio and that 533 can/could do 600-700 so that will overclocked a C2D upto 300fsb-350fsb on a 1:1 ratio.

The G.Skill $500 kit is a waste of money, for $200 less, you can buy the 800mhz modules and pull the 1000mhz on a 4-4-4-8 with the same 2.30v the $500 kit is doing, so no need to throw $200 down the drain.

Either way, what hopes are there for nVidia nForce chipsets that a P965X can't do, besides SLI which is the biggest hype is keeping nVidia a float. SLI on a 19" monitor? Nothing a GX2 can't handle.

I'm sorry Nasgul...by demand I didn't mean to imply MUST HAVE. I meant, it has incredible capacity for speed. If you doubt the power of the GSkill "black" series and the P5B deluxe...click on my little folding gear. That score is from a single E6600 processor. It's the FASTEST score for a single CPU (Except for Buick...). That is a E6600, P5B deluxe and GSKill PC8000 with 4-4-4-5 timing. The proof is in the pudding Nasgul...I say this with reverence Dark Lord.

Your system is fine and will run everything you want for a while matey. You have a good setup so theres actually no need for C2D however if you feel you must i would wait a month or 2 for the new technology to be released.

Sorry Franken, I don't know what that little folder means and I don't doubt the power of the G.Skill with the black heat spreader because I have a pair of G.Skill myself running at 1000mhz with a 4-4-4-8 with only a 2.30v whereas the 1000mhz kit is running at 4-4-4-5 with a 2.40v, so that means I could just lower the 8 down to 5 and up the Vdimm a notch and there, I just got myself a pair of $500 memory modules for the price of $300.
