also isnt the intel core 2 duo e6420 slightly better than the intel core 2 duo e6400 as it is above it in the intel product line up but it is cheaper to buy?

i might have missed paste, but im not sure of the cpu fan including it. also, if you want to run dual 7600's in sli, just add another one to the cart. all together shipped it should be well under $800 usd.
