I was forced into a PC upgrade by a faulty power rail to the PCI-E slot on my old motherboard. Since my old machine was a socket 939 which has been obsolete for ages, I needed to buy a new motherboard, memory and processor.

Debated for ages about whether or not to get a Q6600 or E6850 but ended up sticking with dual core and going the E6850 - 600Mhz clock for the same price was too much of a difference. Besides, whats the point in having 4 cores if you only ever use two.

So now I have:
ASUS P5K-E Motherboard
2GB Corsair DDR2-800 C4
Intel E6850

Plus my old 8800GTX.

This setup is amazing. Crysis is smooth as silk on high settings. Hallelujah.
