    Heyyyy.....Good to see you around again!

    Yup the board looks cool and DFI are usually good overclockers.
    Personally I'm waiting for Jan 8th. Thats when the new Phenom 2 is out..
    3GHz unlocked multiplier and an almost guaranteed overclock to 4GHz (on air)
    Woooot and they fit straight into my new mobo which already has the necessary
    bios...

    One thought....How come your not going i7?

    Because there is nothing wrong w/ my QX6700 (Unlocked multiplier) that runs 3.2 Ghz on air 24/7 and I've had it stable @ 3.6 Ghz but don't see the need in it. :cool:

    How about the new solid state drives? I've been reading a lot about them lately.
    The boffins are also working on optic hard drives and neural. The latter work a bit like the brain. I just hope they don't come up with something similar as the Almighty did with mine - dark days ahead!

    I hope they come up with bigger and cheaper solid state drives, that would really be nice. And they have not yet really cracked the 4.5 ghz processors have they? I have been mildly surprised at that one. You all have a good Christmas now and a happy New Year!!!!!
