i plan to overclock but with the stock cooler. like i said this is not my gaming system, im just trying to use my old parts from when i upgraded to a new mother board and cpu etc. i figured i have everything but a power supply and cpu left over so i may as well just have 2 computers.
I have decieded to get the open box e3300 on newegg and use my 15$ gift card on it to get it shiped to my house for 25 bucks. I dont really need alot of performance as this will be used for blu ray, and also as a storage pc. some games will be played on it but they will be by my daughter. and by the time shes old enough to play crysis, or gta 3 and 4 i think my current main rig will be the retired old rig.
My other pc is:
2x gtx 480
i could always get a new quad core cpu and put my e8400 in the spare pc but i think the e8400 is abotu as good as im going to get in games. at least untill the new sandy beach or bulldozer come out. I mean there are betters but not enough to justify buying one yet.
