right, getting a new cpu at x-mas....but which one?
an opty 165 or a 170?
iv heard that the 165 oc`s well, but what if my mobo`s fsb cant get high enough to deal with the 9x multi?
would the 170 be a better call?

I say 170, so if you can't get as far as you want with a 165, that 170 will fulfill your needs.

Besides you've got value mem, you need the highest multi you can get.

Wit your Geil Value you may struggle to get a high OC with the Opty 165 due to its 9x Multi. The 170 will help with its 10x Multi However may not push aswel as the Opty 165...I would say go with the 170 in this case however.

my ram cant be that bad....yeah its on a devider but its still oc`d 24mhz.
i dont know if this will be the case when it comes to the opty though, will there be much difference? i mean, will the RAM still oc like that with a different cpu?
