Thanks SJA ill check out those links.
And eagle I hope it does! I bought a freezer 7 for heatsink, and going to run 3 120mm fans for the case, so if I can run a safe slight overclock I would absolutely like to, I bought a p35 gigabyte mobo. Only problem is I dont know that much about ram and I bought some ddr2-667 corsair ( 2 gb ) and I have read that that is horrible ram for overclocking. That and the e6550 already runs at 1333 fsb stock. Any tips I would greatly appreciate.
To be honest about FPS, I wouldnt like any less than 25-30, and if it means turning down some detail that is fine at 1920. Its a shame the game still doesnt run better at our current performance market ( within reason ).
