    As soon as Michael Meyers A+ 6th Edition is out, I'll probably get that and Trip's book at the same time to use for our A+ product.

    Sweet. Good mobo - I'm using the Asus P5B with the smallest C2D, the E6300 (1.86 GHz). Only 2GB here. System purrs. Haven't seen a single processor or memory bottleneck... for once, I didn't have to shut down my virus scan to be able to multitask!

    nice one Brain
    im looking forward to the improvement from my current Netburst 3.2Ghz
    it should be a remarkable improvement

    does it show up as 2CPU or 4CPU in task manager? not sure if they had hyperthreading on them or not :)

    Completely different architecture on these Core 2 Duos. No hyperthreading. Good thing is... it doesn't need it. :)

    ...I never liked hyperthreading much anyway. Always seemed to nerf my CPUs, especially when I *needed* 100% processor utilization on a single task.

    I'll look when I get home, but I'm pretty sure it shows up as two CPUs.
