Core 2 Duo E6700 $190 never overclocked

Thanks in advance.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Not yet, things got busy between the holidays, working (i'm a contractor and everyone wants everything done the week before the holiday LOL), and family. I think I've got it narrowed down and will post finalists soon. I thought I might find some good deals on used equipment at the different forums and thought this might be one. Since I haven't done my due diligence on CPU I am completly in the dark on CPU's. Locked multiplier, stepping, FPO/Batch # and what else is there that I don't even know enough to ask about? By the way I saw the same CPU at CLUBIT.com and it was a "go" version? I've got to study this stuff, all I know is that I don't know enough.

You are finding out that...there is research that should be done...before buying a system or components :thumbsup:.

Just take your time and ensure that you will be happy with whatever you ultimately decide to purchase.

Thanks for all the help. I do believe I will forgo the CPU at this time and consentrate on the selection and purchase of my MOBO. I will probably end up getting the Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6 as soon as I can find some $$$ though I am open to suggestions. Does anyone know if MOBO price drops are in the near future? :trumpet: :thumbsup: :flowers:

January is inventory-reduction month for any business with a calendar year-end for financial purposes (I was an accountant in my former life:).

Should be lots of computer items on sale from no through mid-Feb...just a guess.
