I was looking into getting an Intel Quad core CPU, compatible MB + Ram, bt i have been reading threads and posts on here for ideas and inspiration. I have been an AMD person every since i had my 1st PC, bt atm i am looking into Intel alot more. I will be using the system as an gaming rig Possible OCing would be a must Possible SLI, as i may consider getting hold of 2 new GC's in the future.
