I really wanted to go the 1366 route but it just bumps the cost up too much because of the jump in MB, CPU, and RAM cost unfortunately. Thanks for the info and clarification. Interested in at what video card the dual 8x speeds begin to be a problem. Will have to do some research. I was actually seriously looking at that MSI board, will take another hard look at it.
Edit: best answer to first posted. Thanks to both.
