Its actually not a bad price, regardless if its a B3 stepping. Show me a better price for 3 components (CPU/MB/4GB Ram), when you want to build a budget machine? You'd prolly loose money on that if you were selling a bare bone yourself, I think.
Explain B3 and why its bad plz? I saw this ad and was interested but wanted to check here first.
B3 stepping is an older make, or in other words when the first came out. GO stepping is newer. Only real difference is that the G0 will run a lil cooler. But between the 2 in performance or OC, is about the same. Just the B3 may run hotter, but not to the point of thermal shutdown.
Oh I wasn't saying the B3 is a poor overclocker by any means, just that it's not quite as good at it as the G0 stepping ones. I've only overclocked my G0 to 3.0ghz so I'm sure a B3 would have been fine for me.
