I am curious how/if there is a difference with a phenom quad in it when running the various tests with teh rest of the hardware the same. Especialy the cpu usage during playback/gaming fps.

MOBO about $99
CPU about $99
Corsair Memory $75
For about $325, I would be good to go for the upgrade.
Nate, that's one fine review!
