Naw, 6400, I don't wanna get a stock cpu below 2ghz and I don't wanna spend more that $300.

I'm headed up to altanta with my computer for some lan goodness. I'd like to have my conroe setup by then to replace this good for nothing p4 640.

All I can say is it better be $250 or I start ripping off someones finger nails.

I have my gigabyte ds3. It is a little funky to use since I've been with abit boards for years, but it seems solid. Guy at extreme with the same stepping chipset my board has got it to like 380fsb or something. A ton more than I plan to get mine up to. Ordered a bunch of case management stuff too, I came up with some great ideas for making everything look neat.

Is he homeless because of it yet? If not, then yes, he does.

If you can even get one right now thats hard to do ...but I don't think I'd even fool with Conroe at this stage of a release.

The temptation is there, however you do not need to spend the heavy cash with what you already have.

Exactly, its a lot easier to see that without a steady flow of federal temptation notes :p

Enjoy it while it lasts, you appreciate everything more when it costs more to you.

I can't return this **** without a 15% restock fee unless its broken, lol. I'm not schmuck enough to claim its broken or break it, good hardware, I just didn't think it through before buying all of it.

Why, because you're worried about getting a cpu in time?

Quad Core, and it won't be AMD's answer to conroe. It will be their answer to Kentwood.

*edit* i mean kentsfield, lol
