One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet is that a WC kit can be ported over to any new system you purchase in the future.

If you're not interested in upgrading your system, and have the cash to go WC, you can consider it similar to purchasing a high end PSU which will take you through several upgrades to your other gear.

since the stuff probably wont be showing up until sometime next week it will have to wait until then. (yes i know, i could have shipped it by air, but that would be VERY expensive with a TX1050B case.)

Yeah opty 165 are good chips, I had WR with mine for a while, did this verification running prime on 1 core to avoid cold bug lol.




But, compared to C2D you could be gaining 30% in perf dollar for dollar. I was die hard AMD for years myself, but they can no longer compete with Intel in terms of perf/price. I think the only thing that will save them is if they get that cpu/graphics integration figured out. Anyway, Ill quit beating a dead horse here, what H20 parts did you order?
