    Yo Techies

    I'm offically signing over to Core 2 Duo as of today . Just purchased a Core 2 Duo Processor for 95 from Ebay brand new , E6300 , 135 retail. I,ll miss my P4, but its going to a good place, my dad is having it . Need a board also, preferablely not to expensive, i,ll do a tiny bit of overclocking but not alot. Main uses Gaming and multi tasking, benchmarking etc. Any recommendations?

    both of my ds3's hit 400 FSB. i highly recomend them. but make sure you update the bios regularly, the new bios updates REALLY helped out my e6600. im able to pump out a lot less volts to get the same overclock now. its excellent.

    but 90% of the post will be about skirt chasing and booze swilling.

    I highly recommend the Gigabyte DS3. A superb MB. Good bios support up to date as well.

    Only problem with the DS3 is no Intel RAID. JMicron supports RAID though.
