    The i7 build. Both are nice but the i7 is consistently a step ahead of the Phenom II 955.

    Similar to build to what I'll be making next month (assuming you go the i7 route).

    Of the HSF you are looking at, I read the Dark Knight will outperform the CM V8
    Fdisk?

    Core i7 all the way. Nice new stuff.
    Just imo that's a lot of fans, it'll be loud even with 120mm. I think 1-2 should be enough.
    Plus the dust build will be hell to clean up (I have 3 total in my computer and man its like a vacuum cleaner.
    Intel Core 2 Duo Q8300 2.55Ghz (1333mhz)
    Asus P5N-D
    OCZ Platinum 8gb (2x2gb) PC8000 1000mhz 5-5-5-18
