(2mb vs. 3mb)~ mobo: Gigabyte G31M-ES2C ram : 2x2gb ddr2 800 cl6 (2x KVR800D2N6/2G) vc : GTS 250 512mb monitor: 1440x900 hdd : seagate 250gb 7200.10 cpu cooler: OCZ Vanquisher i thought about upgrading because for $20 bucks, i think it's quite a bargain thinking that the price diff of the 2 processors is more than $40.
