I'm building a new rig in a few weeks and i'm wondering if I can use a phenom II x4 on the nForce 790i? Sorry if this is a stupid question and all, but is there a difference from core 2 quad and phenom II x4? The phenoms just seem to be a lot cheaper... Thanks...

The highend Core 2 Quads are a tad faster clock for clock but for the cost of them it is not worth building a core 2 system. Go for the Phenom II X4 or and I5 750 if you are an Intel fan.
