I'd go with MSI's X58
, it's $80 cheaper and has everything the ASUS has.
I'm very close to getting the X2. there's a system from ibuypower with an i7 940 and an x2. for under $2500
I thought you were building? And $2500 is a lot of money even for that.
@worshipme: Laziness can result into great things. That guide I wrote about the FSB bottleneck was only written because I was bored and because I was getting tired of explaining how the bottleneck worked. I think I created after the 4-5th time I had to explain it.
No, it doesn't. And being lazy wouldn't make you write that guide.
Linking to that thread was lazy, and no lame excuse will ever change that.
It's kind of hard to for you to know the tone of voice I'm using so I just want you to know that I'm not serious.
