Nothing else performs like a custom-tuned machine that you can push far beyond the rated capabilities of its components. But many buyers lack the time and/or skill to tweak their own systems, and even if they did the whole process of buying the best parts

Crysis benchmark is where?

Exactly my thoughts rtfm.
with the exception of Supreme Commander and Warhammer. The games tested are clearly last generation. Why are you still running DX9 games to benchmark a DX10 system? get something there to actually stress the system a little bit.

Wow, I bet solitare would have over 200 fps with the Uber. Where are the benchmarks for games that folks actually play?

I just want to know what the CPU voltage is, I have the e8400 and have it a 3.6 but would love to go to 4.0 if I knew more on how to set it. I have DDR2 800 ram though (Gskill)

Two DVD burners would have been better choice than a DVD reader and a DVD burner. You can launch two copies of most writer software (i.e. Nero Essentials that's included with LG drives) and burn two DVD's simultaneously, good for making quick rapid copies of photo albums and home videos for friends at a party. Even worthwhile in the budget $1500 gaming rig. I have two of the same DVD writers and writing to both simultaneously is not a problem for modern dual core systems (less than 5% CPU to burn to two drives at once), and you still have enough CPU headroom left to play HD video simultaneously on a mid-range graphics card.

ap90033, I also have the E8400, DDR2 800 ram and have it at 4.0 stable. My settings:

FSB - 1779
RAM - 800
CPU core - 1.50v
CPU VVT - 1.35v
Nothbridge - 1.43v
LTD - 3x (Under Advanced Chipset Features)
Memory Timing - Auto

Would like to go higher than 4 but my abit FP-IN9 mobo refuses. The same with everyone else who has this board. Point is, you should get your e8400 up to 4.4 at least with a OC friendly board.

isnt that voltage to high? I thought 1.4 was the highest you could go safely?

which voltage do you mean: cpu core or northbridge? some people go even higher:

Check out those settings. Apparently raising the cpu vvt voltage quite high can help a lot with stability.

extra cooling for the northbridge would be a good idea though.
