So I bought the 144. CAB2E boxed. And then I thought "hmm the optis gonna vanish? *I have no clue if this is true*Better a buy a 165 too now that I have the chance" .

:santa:

In the long term, I would propably have to quit this behavior.

So, now I have a boxed 144 and a boxed 165 and no money for a motherboard until xmas! :clap: But thats OK, waiting for mor 1695 boards to show up anyway.

I think one of them has to go. Feels like the 144 doesnt it?

Any word on wich one too keep regardless of motivation is welcome!

Oh, I forgot to mention, that the same place also have the Opteron 150 in stock. If I dont keep my habit in place this could turn out to be a threesome. I could always skip buying food next month. :D

Nah, its 2.4 ghz. I almost bought that at first, but the guy at the counter said it would be better to buy the 144 and clock it. So I said "really, can you do that??". :D

I wanted an 148 or 146, but those are nowhere to be found locally.
