Okay, I visited a local computer shop and I'm waiting for them to give me a quote on the rig below. They don't OC. And, I'm going to get them to give me a quote with the 940 as well. So price pending and some thinking I'm wondering where to go with things here. Either the 920 or 940 i7. I'm going to likely lean on the 940 to at least play stock till I get through their warranty. It'll void out their warranty if it's done during the year it's covered. So it's till Monday to see what type of quote they give me. So just when I think I've got things hammered out...They kept trying to sell me on AMD systems though. They'll do Intel builds and think they're higher priced than expected. I told'em the 920's about $290 and the 940 about $500. Not to mention the low end i7 is supposed to run even with the extreme Quad 4's.
