That's what i'm running as a daily driver
That being said..not much more performance difference between Yorkfield and Kentsfield.
There is some..Yorkfield clocks higher because it's a double-Wolfdale.
For $150 you should be able to come up with a Lynnfield + p55 mobo..
ooo..but then you might need some RAM
You might can still find some decent RAM for about $30.
Lynnfield OC'd IS a large improvement.
Most likely I'll be making that switch to Lynnfield today. woohoo!
PS: I have a p7p55d-pro for $80 on [h] and ocn.
