Definitely do it, I just posted that because it's the cheapest one. The E6400 is only $40 more...

Ah, I see. Well, get either the Zalman 9700, the Thermaltake Big Typhoon, or the Tuniq Tower if you've got the cash. Those are the top 3 Socket 775 coolers IMO.

Yes, it lowers temps about 10C more than the others. The Zalman is very nice looking though. Get the Tuniq Tower and some Arctic Silver 5 and you'll be doing some intense OCing! I just order the Tuniq Tower from Xoxide, they're really hard to find, and they go out of stock fast:

Lol, good call. I should be getting mine in the mail this week, I'll post some OCing results eventually.

back to original topic. Me even with the C2D out i still prefer AMD. Intel has disappointed me too many times with the Pentium 4 HT and then Pentium D. Takes em 3 years to catch up and they make the C2D. Though with the technology enhancments... and AMD working on 4x4, might take even longer than 3 years for AMD to catch up again, ehh but u cant do everything through predicting :P

AMD is working more on how to implement GPU and CPU into one package and make it run more efficiently. hence the purchase of ATI. I'd say so long as the company stays afloat for another 5 - 6 years, expect a great product from them then.
