The fan is out of stock.

At lower resolutions (1680x1050 and below), there won't be much difference between the GTX 275's performance and the GTX 285. Maybe 4-5 fps, but that isn't easily noticeable.

Edit: The Call of Duty 4 and 5 that come with the 285 are a $100 cad value, and there is a $30 usd rebate on it. If you planned on buying either or both of those games separately, the 285 is a great deal though.

you sure all these components are compatible (I don't want to by all this and find out one thing isn't compatible :( )
It's alright if it's out of stock im buying all of this in june (When I have the money for it :p)
 

1) I think people are hitting 4Ghz with these. Is a x9 mutiplier, so at a 400 bus you are at 3.6Ghz which would run DDR2 800 in a 1:1 ratio. If you want 4Ghz I suggest faster RAM since you will be at a 445MHz bus.
2) I did say "everything will work"
3) Absolutely. You won't get a quad to hit 4Ghz like the e8400 will. I guess it depends on what you are doing with it. For games YES, the faster clock delivers better performance on most games over a quad core that runs slower. If you are running alot of apps that take advantage of all 4 cores, then maybe a quad is your cup of tea.

hmm but for a bit less you can get a 720 BE which is a superior processor in many ways, just overclocking is a hit and miss situation, you may hit 3.2ghz, or you may get to 4.4ghz.

also am2+ mobo's are cheaper than intel mobo's and use less energy.

and the GTX 285 is way overpriced, 4890 with a nice 100mhz oc is the way to go.

the 4890 is equal to a GTX 275/280 stock but when oc'd it can reach GTX 285 performance.

for an AM2+ mobo the best idea would be a 790GX motherboard, any make except asrock preferably, also biostar boards may let you overclock further so take that into account.

They're both good companies to get the card from. I know at least XFX has a lifetime warranty.
Both cards are about the same price after rebate, but the XFX comes with 2 free games, I think that would make it the obvious choice.
