Been a little while since i've gotten a new motherboard and CPU..... and i have a nice bit of money (plus a Newegg Preferred Account) now, so i figured i'd start lookin around. Here's what i've been lookin at. Abit IP35 Pro http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813127030 Core 2 Quad Q9300 (maybe) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115043 If the Q9450's become available again soon, i'm probably gonna get one of those for the 12MB L2 cache, instead of the 6MB the Q9300 has. And i'm probably getting a new CPU cooler for it too. thinkin about the Zalman CNPS9700 NT. Even been thinking about just getting a Phenom X4 9850 BE now that my board supports them. Anybody have any suggestions/comments?
