Affordable mATX i7 Build

So, I've been scouring newegg a lot lately.
I read a review for a new microATX X58 Mobo from MSI, the MSI X58M, on Anandtech a few days ago (link (http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=3568))....

Windows 7 feels a lot quicker than Vista, in my opinion.
Also, your old computer has twice the performance of the Pentium 4 specs you posted earlier so yeah, you should be able to run Win7 fine.

I'd recommend getting another gig of memory.

Wow, it's a shame that the frame rates in Far Cry 2 are worse in Windows 7 than in Vista.
Win7 x64 boot times are better than Windows XP though, that's cool.

Almost every 'warning' of that kind is usually a Trojan in disguise.

I believe in Windows 64-bit, it installs a component called WoW (Windows over windows, or something like that) that allows the OS to run 32-bit applications.

About half of my games I buy off of Steam and the physical copies, I just make them into images and mount 'em.

I actually bought mine retail @ Wal-Mart and with taxes, it was a little more expensive than it would've been over Steam.
This was around January so I think that's when L4D was reduced to $39.99.

I totally agree.
I feel like they could've just waited these months and just made the first RIGHT.

I won't be buying the sequel.

I think Intel's getting a little too far ahead of itself.
Quad core support is still in its early infancy, software-wise.
