Default Re: Future Build - Your Thoughts

so im assuming you are going to get an C2D? because the board only supports C2D, and not C2Q
also, the Max RAM speed that board supports is 667mhz, and not 800mhz, so that means you would have to change your ram to 667mhz instead of 800mhz (6400). I think it might be harder to OC to get the 1:1 ratio if you wanted to.
On some tests, an 5:4 ratio is faster than 1:1 ratio, but the 1:1 give you better timings, and more stable your ram becomes.
the chipsets also seem kind of old.

How much are you planning to save up for your future build?
