i give it since its a gaming computer around a 8-9 outta 10 only because i still arent happy with my computer. running at 2.2ghz and my 6600gt at 550/1100 and yet i still dont get a poo load of fps in games. only like 70+ in CSS. maybe i just have very high standards. but i figure it should be like 100+. although all in all you wont be unhappy with that buy. make sure you buy artic silver ceramique or artic silver 5 thermal paste. the stuff that comes with them are crap.

Nice mobo, but if you want this rig to last in the long run, I would get the MSi neo4. It's SLi, so next year, you can pop another 6600 GT in :P.

Kinda like this one?

I always heard that AMD was cheaper then Intel. But I really don't think so.


Edit: I found it cheaper!
