Re: Build for some games.

...Either red faction or mafia should be the most demanding, so what would make constant 75fps (for vSync) on these games?

Re: Dual socket 370 system!

Congrats on the board, its a very nice one indeed! -Watch out for the caps, even if they look pristine Abit used some cheap ones back then.
