That should shave off $700+ off of that purchase. You may get a dropoff in performance, but it's still quite a performer.
The dropoff wouldn't be noticable anyways...

The Abit Fatal1ty board is OC crazy and with the ultra low latency of the Geil ONE RAM at DDR600 and the 4800+ X2 Toledo core, that is one fast system. It would have to be noticeable with certain applications.

By the way Natalya, you're going to have to change that RAM. Not compatible. Use the Geil ONE:

GeIL ONE Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) TCCD chips Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16820144341

The best RAM out there and lowest CAS latency I've seen to date. That's like the mother of all systems here. It will OWN.

Welcome to the forums

That computers looking amazing by the way!... makes my computer look like a prehistoric dinosaur.
Well its not that bad, but if you check the Performance Test 6.0 thread in the Computer section at the top, you'll see my computers not performing as well as it should.
Post in there once you've built it. I'd like to see how that does, hehe.

Anyhow, enjoy the build
