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.
The greatest delight is to mark one's enemy, prepare everything, avenge oneself thoroughly, and then go to sleep.
