    Re: Capacitors surrounding CPU on mobo

    That is quite true. I currently have a P35 Intel chipset Gigabyte board that I am running a core 2 duo on. I have been running that 2.66 gHz processor at 3.4 gHz rock solid for years. So my...

    SSD's are already in the build, and while i agree that if it is ONLY being used for video rendering then yes, 60 is probably all he'll need. I am imagining that this will become a main home computer...
