    I've reach a point in my life where...

    ...i need to upgrade!!
    Which should i go for? I'm a Intel owner now and don't want to change, so i was planning on a fcpga 700E (cB0 stepping of course) or a 800E. Dunno much about the 800 or it stepping and so on...
    is it easy to OC?
    what dates should i look for?
    I don't want to buy the pig in the bag and sit at home with a expenisive "no way to OC" cpu...
    so, help me out guys.. i'm listening to att of you experts...
    Is the 800 worth it?

    I'd go for the 750...the 800's won't get you much higher...cuz you hit the limit of the core...so for hardcore OC'ers a 750@150core is better than a 800@133(haven't seen many doing more...)

    Thanx, Tweety...
    I have a stability problem fsb@150, don't think i'm able to run it there.
    But a 750 would do 1050Mhz pretty easy, but then there's not that much difference in price between 750 and a 800.
    So it's all about having a 750 @ max 1050 or a 800 @ 1064 but a possibility of hitting 1120.
    I'm still a little schizo about this...
    Is there any difference in cache or anything else that favor a 800?

    Nah, there's no diff in cache size's or anythign like that, as long as u get the same stepping, the chips should be virtually the same except from a multiplier.
