Hmmm your right i think i might actually do that and just give my GF my old CPU for when i build her a computer. But if it helps at all mostly im going to be playing guild wars 2. Would that help? O and i know this is off topic but i wasnt getting very good framerates during the beta last weekend. I know its beta so it might change when the game releases but do you have any suggestions or opinions? And i forgot to add that its cooled by a Corsair H60.
