Nice. Wait until you get an aftermarket HSF to OC the CPU. Don't OC the RAM. Next should be a new video card.
I got the 1155 socket to keep my options open in the future.
and you're right on both counts:
cooling is the next concern
and the GPU is just OK, nothing special
You think bumping the RAM up to 16 gigs would make that
much difference? I'm reading here that it wouldn't...(?)
