You might want to look into getting a 3000 or 3200 DTR Athlon 64 since they're on the ClawHammer cores and have 1MB of L2. The Sound Blaster Audigy is much better compared to the onboard audio, much better


Oh, and welcome to the forums!

Step 3: Your credit/debit card has been successfully charged. Please note that you may no longer make changes to your order.

lol it only takes them a few hours to charge your credit card, but days to refund it
I guess you can stick with what you got, which by no means is bad, or just cancel it and reorder.

I'm not sure about that one, probably not though since the DTRs have the exposed die and they contact area is a bit lower than those with an IHS. I know the Thermalright XP-120 fits, and that's about the best air cooler you can buy anyway.
