I forgot the specifics, but I believe they're held to higher standards, and run generally at lower voltages and tolerate more heat, and therefore, are better overclockers. They run just like their desktop counterparts- the X3110 is essentially the E8400, except you're more likely to get a higher OC on it.

still, i thought that it had a specific purpose to servers that made it more reliable on a server pc than a normal dual core

Hey man, this thread is great, answered a lot of questions too! I'm halfway to getting enough to my first build and I will use this thread. Just wanted to know though, all of these are with vista right? oh and was also wondering if you could list the link for the OS somewhere, would be helpful.

Sure, just ask me if you want to know if the new parts are compatible with your current system.

I'm thinking about doing something like the budget $500 computer but adding a blu-ray drive to it. I'm wondering what modification i need in order to have HDMI or DVI output plus 5.1 toslink fiber optic audio? Is there such a motherboard that has these two things or would I be looking at specific video/sound cards?

780G motherboards have HDMI and DVI out. All you would need to do is to add a blu-ray player to the first build.
