LOL, man, you are a paradox. After all that talk about Nehalem and trashing nForce boards you end up purchasing a Penryn AND an nForce board this close to the launch of Nehalem and Intel SLI-equipped boards?

What was it you said before about us all "wasting our money?"

I'm glad I put off on all the upgrades until Q4. Now I can make the purchase count and have even better compared to what alot of other users here whom have already wasted their money on the current trend of hardware and graphics cards. Come to think of it, That would suck to have to gut my entire motherboard out just for another **** faced nForce chipset which now is behind me like when I just got done flushing the toilet. Now I can make the purchase count and have even better compared to what alot of other users here whom have already wasted their money on the current trend of hardware and graphics cards.

....any why would you get 4x1GB memory instead of 2x2GB?

Yeah, Digital that seems like a rather useless upgrade to me.

You aren't going to see any difference with anything you just bought. DDR3 that does nothing for real performance, slightly upgraded chipset, and a CPU that will clock slightly higher...

Why bother? Especially with Nehelem coming so soon.

Prolly should have got a couple of 280s instead (lee63) that CPU is $1400 right ??

Asus makes awful Nforce boards. Strikers anyone?

+1 for a bad purchase.

Well it is his money, and he can do what he wants with it, so I won't comment on the reasoning for the purchase. I am shocked you did make the purchase given your previous remarks on the Nforce chipsets and Nehalem being right around the corner. You couldn't have clocked that QX6850 any higher than 3.6ghz? After making the switch from Nvidia chipsets to intel chipsets I would never go back.

Is anyone surprised? This guy is well known for throwing away money on useless crap like HP systems, Monster Cables, etc.

I'll state it again, "A fool and his money are quickly parted."

I finally got rid of my Asus Nforce crap too.

And this is from the same guy who said something about "all these stupid people upgrading for nothing and wasting money"...

This is something...

Less, OEM $750.00 I sold my QX6850 to an ebay member for $700.00 so it wasn't to bad in my option.

Yes, it's the kit you recommended. Sorry, I made a small typo there.

I want the refresh from NVIDIA. I'll wait it out for at least those cards.

This might be a little harsh, but since we had all, as the OP put it, "wasted [our] money" I think it's justified in this case...

LOL! No worries here. I noted in my early post that I was going to stop bagging and trolling on nForce. Everyone deserves a second chance including NVIDIA nForce.

So should I cancel my order on the motherboard and memory? :o You guys seem to really be pissed off on me making the purchase but I can cancel it. That's only a click away today! ;)

It's your money bro, but why would you uprgade now? Wait and see if Intel is a flop or worth the money. I also would think that 775 will be a lot cheaper once the new stuff is out there.

I agree with bacon. (that sounds funny :lol: )

You can buy whatever you want, but I doubt you'll see any difference with this upgrade and with a big release from Intel coming very soon it seems like a VERY bad idea to spend a lot of money on a high end platform that will be superseded in a couple of months.

No one's "pissed off".. just pointing out the flaw in your logic. I couldn't care less what you do with your money. :)

Actually, that's not entirely true. I have this really fast CPU pre-Nehalem model and,.. hey, wanna try it?

At the very least get some 2gig memory modules. It's a waste of time and money buying those 4x1 gb sticks.

TBH I wouldn't order that motherboard either, although it's probably better than the steaming turd of a board you have now.
