    Hi everyone.
    I'm probably going to buy the QX9650 when it comes out in a few days, if it turns out to be around $1000 and no more.
    I can't decide what MB to put it in though...
    I am running some Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066Mhz. So I was thinking the MSI P35 Platinum?
    I won't be likely to run SLI so I don't need 680i, and I won't be running DDR3 for a long time yet so don't want to go X38.
    I'm also planning on OCing the processor to probably around 4Ghz, with the FSB up to maybe 1500 or 1600Mhz. So I need something that can happily handle that FSB without custom cooling (Antec 900 with all possible fans, and a Thermalright Ultra-120e on the proc, though), and that can assist me favorably with the processor OC.
    Suggestions?
    :cool: ;)
