Sandy Bridge problems?  I foresee that Geek Squad will recommend you a purchase of extended warranty - and when it's needed down the line, they'll say the warranty was void because of manufacturer error or some other bullshit.  They'll just recommend you to buy a new hard drive and a new computer on your second repair visit.

Typical Best Buy, wouldn't be surprised X-D

A nice place to browse, but I usually avoid purchasing from there.

While they are redoing the chipset, they should allow the CPU video processing to be handed off to discrete graphics cards.

Would like to have a peak at the training material these fckin tools have.  Would also like to know how many of the nimrods there can actually read it, let alone understand it.

I thought the bclock was now part of the CPU so you couldn't OC using it. With a locked muti and all most no room to ramp up the bclock what's this magic know how and imagination your talking about?

I could be wrong but I thought the K series were the only overclocking sandies.

The 2600K is a factory unlocked chip which is much more easily overclockable.  The standard 2600 is not "unlocked" although it can still be OC'd, it just takes a bit more know how and imagination.

Question 4.  The 2600K costs more than the 2600 because. . .

A.  It's faster.

B.  It's bluer.

C.  It has an extra letter.
