Default Worthy upgrade?

Eh.. It's about 111F in here (no joke) so if I stop making sense trace my IP and call an ambulance.

So I is upgrading to an AM2/am2+ or am2+/am3 OR am3 board for an upgrade to a PII 955 and this turned me on. I think it's a little expensive, but OMG AN OC DIAL ON THE MB!!! I... MUST...HAVE!!! I know you're going to say OMGUZNEEDDDR3 but I can manage. 4GB is only $60!

I was wondering your thoughts on it or any other board that can handle it.

Looks like a badass board but i wouldn't use that dial. you would probably just be better off using bios to OC

Forgot to mention, the OC dial adjusts vRAM vCORE and other crap as well as the actual FSB. So I'm sure it's better than just upping the voltage in the BIOs
