Any reason you did not go with an Intel core 2 duo ?

I had both priced out and the Intel was coming in around $50 more because of the different motherboard. For the price <$250 the AMD also benched higher than the Core 2 [E6400] in about everything I researched.

Yeah, but with a little tweaking/overclocking of the E6400, it would easily send that AMD packing.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
