Also, i guess you more an AMD guy, i dont know why i just prefer intel... i have the e8500 prossesor and i couldnt be happier with it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115036

I heard AMD is working hard on a new idea of how to make a quad core more efficient though, so maybe it would be better to use an AMD Processor for an easy upgrade later.
