  1. 3.6 is like the unofficial "sweet spot" for a CPU. You probably don't want to OC more.

    Why don't you get a 4870? Its more powerful + around the same price.
  2. Get the Sapphire HD 4870 512mb for $125 after $10 rebate.

    OR get the 1gb if you want AA on high resolution.
  3. ^ +1 at the prices the 4870 have dropped to, it's really a great deal.
