Im getting a new gaming computer soon and im wondering if i would notice a difference in gaming with an additional .4 ghz? I probly wont overclock since i have never done it before, but if any of you have a guide to overclock for stupid people (me) then i would love a link!
So far ive decided on 6g ram and a gtx 295 and a 1920 1200 res.
Thanks for your help!

920 will be faster up to 50% in apps then the 950. In gaming it's to close to call

Really? That's odd - a D0 stepping Core i7 at 3.06GHz is slower than a 2.66GHz i7? When did that happen?

i think it happened when AMD claimed the performance crown from intel a week ago.... *end stupidity sarcasm*
