Great boards and typically less expensive than Asus. mpasternak November 10, 2005 7:31:37 PM concurred... ya waant the 3700 for the gaming rig but why x800xl? you'll do better with a x1800 or 7800GT if you can afford it, if not get the 6800GT or 6800GS Related resources how much boost is g2120 going to give over pentium d 820 2.8ghz - Forum Pentium D 820 2.8ghz or G2120 - Forum Pentium D 820 OC - Forum Can I replace Pentium D820 Dual with Core 2 Duo E6700 - Forum Mobo for Pentium D 820 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
