Intel and AMD have similar frequencies, but Intel has more cache, so I went with that. As for nVidia and ATI...I've just heard more about nVidia, so I went with that.

Hehe, Thanks TT

Yes it's nice when you can have things spread out,
I have alot of stuff crammed onto one side of the room
for ease of access.

The other side of the room has some deprecated equipment
and hardware I use for testing and such.

And the closet is chock full of software dating back ages.
For example, remember this

Nice rig, but I do hope that subwoofer is magnetically shielded. Also, you really need some decorations on the wall.

Alright Antman...I need a good professional reconmendation...I am looking for a processor for a board a friend gave me...the socket on the board is LGA775...I am looking to not spend much but I want to have some power behind it...thoughts?

Anyone can jump in here (didn't want to start a whole thread for this...seeing how it ties in here)
If you're strictly a gamer you can get an e8400 3.0Ghz dual core(~$150) which can easily/safely be overclocked to 3.6-3.8Ghz on air cooling
If you want a processor that can do it all ie:Gaming,multitask without taking performance hit,render video/graphics quickly, go for the q9550 2.83Ghz quad(~$219) which can easily/safely be overclocked to 3.6-3.8Ghz on air cooling.

Also want to mention a quad is more future proof as more Apps and Games are starting to utilize it.
