Haha..okay..

I was simply wondering if you had cap room to go in the better/faster C2D or C2Q direction...but as long as that CPU will work for you, it should be great!

Darn. You have a very limiting MB.

But I'm glad you posted that link because you can't even run that E7400 according to Intel's site. So good thing that was caught before you dropped $120.

Yeah I know..upgrading sucks, but atleast you didn't buy that E7400 yet...ha..that would've REALLY sucked. Would you like me to look at some options or no? I'm thinking if you are looking to upgrade and aren't a fanboy of intel, a AMD system (as in MB and CPU combo) would be most cost effective right now...

I urge you to at least CONSIDER AMD. I too, am an Intel guy, but with the economy the way it is lately, AMD is really taking a bite into Intels lead...they may possibly be winning (at least as far as best bang-for-your-buck is concerned). Some one can probably give you some insight into AMD and how it stacks up to Intel currently.

So, now that we can effectively kick the $120 budget, what's your new budget?
