    why ??

    here in the site alot of reviewers consider the core i3-2100 to be more gaming processor than the 965 !!!

    what about the xeon ? and it's FB-DIMMs ?? i read the FD-DIMMs have some slow features, but to what extent it will affect the processor's speed ?

    which system is to perform better with XFX 5770 ?

    I'm running dual E5450's on an old server I got from work for free, I threw a nVidia GeForce GTX660 in it and it runs like a champ. I can play Starcraft 2 with most of the settings on ultra, Windows reports a 7.7 for the processor and ram speeds even though it's FB DDR2 PC 5300 RAM. For how old the hardware is and it only being a single PCIe 2.0 slot on the motherboard I get decent 3DMark scores for only paying $200 bucks for the video card.

    Anyway this rig was just an experiment to get me off the laptop for gaming unitl I can afford a newer gaming rig. I couldn't be happier. That is until I get a new Mobo, Processor and RAM. I'll include the CPU-z so you can get a feel for what I'm running.
