Default Ga ma790x-ud4 install questions?

I'm swapping out the mobo in sig. I have a x2 5600 L2 2MB 2.8ghz and a x2 6000 L2 1MB 3.1ghz, which is the better for gaming? Both don't overclock well on the 430 chipset 200mhz and not very stable either, hopefully the 790/sb750 will get more oc. I should be getting modivated in the next hour or so.

It really depends. If you are gaming at lower resolutions you will encounter a bit of a performance increase but not much. At higher resolutions, the performance increase will be virtually nil.

1680x1050 x8af, Farcry2 x4aa, NFSProstreetx8aa, MOH Air x4aa, COD x4aa. I'll just stick with the 6000 then and sell off the 5600 later once I figure out how the money transfer thing works, I have paypal basic, I read up on it but I just don't get it. Say if I listed it on FS forum here posted a pic like I'm supposed to, then someone wants to buy it at the price I ask, what happens then, what payment method is used, is paypal what is used how does it work?? Any help understanding this would be appreciated, I got a bunch of parts just sitting around needing to be sold. Thanks
