I didn't post in the other thread, but you basically summed up why i kinda agreed with the guy that was moaning about it.
"One thing to remember, the average Joe doesnt OC"
but the average joe has...
4GB Corsair PC2-10000C5 (Ching ching mega bucks)
XFX GeForce 8800GTX (see above)
I see what the article is trying to illustrate, but its kinda unbalanced.
Fair enough compare 10 cpus with that setup, but to call it $185 gaming....thats just stupid. Especially since gaming revolves a lot more around graphics cards than cpu's.
I think $2000 gaming would be a more suitable title, or, how not to build a system.
owell the e4300 cost 130bucks on new egg now
.. and the e4300 is just as fast as the e6300.. so gues wut! intel wins! and anyways the e4300 runs at 800mhz, and unless ur a idiot it wont be hard to bump it to 1333fsb
