    What you are seeing is the effect of marketing at work. Most games these days will play just fine on older generation processors, the key factor is the graphic power of modern cards when playing at higher resolutions. Most of the time the CPU is simply the means of harnessing that graphic power.

    Enjoy your system and thanks for the feedback.

    I think you are correct on that point with one exception on the speed of the PCIe slots and I see the responce time with the formula V is much better than the II Formula and the new board seems much more stable under load but that may also be the chip set as this is the first non-NVidia chip set I have ever ran

    allthough i realy liked the stability of the NVidia chip set with a set of NVidia cards. it makes me wonder if NVidia is going to release a chipset for the AMD FX line of CPU's
