My System Specs

Default

I got in touch with a friend who is a genius with hardware yesterday. He shot me down with this build. He started talking about a GTL stepping error or something in this version of the Quad cores, as well as serious CPU degradation going on if you increase the voltages. As for the video card, he went on about how the 9800GXT was mainly a filler, and a better 9900GTX will be out within two months. Anyone have any comments on that?

He suggested going with a Q6600 and switching it out later to a 45nm quad when they had worked out more of the bugs.
