Make sure you have the fans set to 35%-45% or you'll melt your mobo. At least, that is how it goes with 4870s...

Well, I am going from a fanless (heatsink) card to this, so I'm probably just not used to it. It's not really loud, just relatively compared to my old one.

I'm getting ready to order my case, board, and CPU here soon. The free shipping got dropped from the case, so I'm waiting to see it they'll bring it back. Not going to do me any good ordering on a weekend, anyways. I'll get the CPU cooler, RAM and other miscellaneous stuff (few case fans, AS5, etc.) next week. Then the main build will be complete. I'm thinking about getting another 4850 (or maybe something better) in a month or so and doing some CrossFiring.

Are you doing so much gaming that the power of CF is worth the cost?

Possibly. I'm gonna see what I can do with what I am getting first. I picked up a pretty good power supply and motherboard in case I do get into a decent about of gaming.

Is the E6300 worth the $13 more for the higher FSB speeds and Virtualization Technology Support?

this might answer it? i would go for it, because for $13 more you get 300 more MHZ


EDIT: lol @ the picture, thought it was the E6300 Core 2 Duo not the pentium

Should be about the some for OC'ing, right? Same voltages and what not. I'm looking to get 3.5GHz or out of it.
