*LOL* Yeah, good luck with that, friend. I'll go ahead and get on the line w/ the fire department so they can head on over in advance.
Thanks, since you are calling them in advance, can you ask them to save the quad core before the house?


I think I get it now. I was just concerned that if I went for say 333 which the gigabyte board promises it can do then I will have 3ghz and a 720mhz ram speed at 2x. Whereas at 2.5x its 833 I think, I just didn't want to end up with the ram slowing the system down. Also, I thought at standard 266 fsb used a 3x multiplier for the ram anyway.

I was going to wait 3-4 weeks before ordering, but Im tempted to order a Q6600 today... Is there anything being released in the next 3 weeks that will make me cry if I order today?

Also, any opinions on the abit quad gt board?
