    Re: I'm new, and sniffing around here

    I've decided to run my first raid array, for now.
    I was ready to jump on a Penryn Q9550. They are still selling Yorkfield off the shelves.

    Besides, I can just wait for two reasons.

    I can see how Nahelm turns out as far as overclocking that Hyperthreaded Quad(or if it needs it). It is rumored to be 380 bucks for the cheapest, when released.

    Nahelm's release might drive the cost down on Penryn.
    It will hopefully be on the shelves by then, also.

    If I decide Nahelm, that's gonna mean a new board, and maybe ddr3 memory.

    So, I'll wait and see what pans out. Besides, how many people would not be content with 3 quality "core" riggs?

    I'd go with another Abit, but the winds of change may be near, and Asus is definitely out of the question.
    Besides, I had some ECS micro's that treated me right. Just not very feature rich.
    What do you say about an overclocking ECS board?
    I wound up getting a q9650 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...d%20-%20Retail
    My Geil ultra's don't play very well in it though...
