    Then MAYBE I'll somehow return this one and get the other one... but is what you're saying a guaranteed overclock?
    Besides, aren't there ways to unlock CPUs like back in the day?

    Same here, I may decide to get Skyrim now after seeing that. Plus if they're gameplay mods to make it less "casual" that'd be more incentive.

    Re: So... what games should I try with my new rig (yes, bragging!)

    Sweet I'm glad I could spark some interest in Skyrim

    The main visual mods I use are :

    1st Stakado's Cinemascope ENB Mod (HDR, letterbox, film grain) 5-10 fps hit on my modest setup

    2nd Realistic Lighting with Customization 0fps hit

    3rd Zoners Realistic Lighting and IMAGINATOR settings 0fps hit

    I also installed Dynavision (DoF) but these screenshots were taken before I heard about it

    Edit : Forgot to mention W.A.T.E.R. and Natural Rain

    Some more screens from my setup (i5 2500k@4.3Ghz, GTX 460 1gb) :

    My Skyrim wallpaper :
    Thumb resize.

    DoF in action although the night shot isn't really helping :
    Thumb resize.

    Messing with the camera during a random NPC only fight :
    Thumb resize.

    Much improved sun glare ! :
    Thumb resize.

    Pondering fighters :
    Thumb resize.

    Breezehome (or whatever the name of the house in Whiterun is) :
    Thumb resize.

    Just normal Skyrim combat blur but re-textured dragons (that one not a superb example) :
    Thumb resize.

    SSAO forced in nvidia control panel (with 296.10 drivers):
    Thumb resize.

    mechanical keyboards rely on a mechanical switch, where as the keyboard you have uses a plastic bubble under the key that compresses and decompresses with each push.

    If you can't understand that there is a difference, there is nothing more I can say. Which is completely different than saying it is a difference worth paying $100 more for.

    Raptor156 there are a lot of gameplay mods to tweak (mostly) everything to your tastes.

    I only use Rebalanced Potion Weight,killmove plus (more killcams and finishing moves), the unofficial skyrim patch,
    some crafting fixes and overhauls, revised ragdoll physics, tweaks to the thief skills and sneaking system, but if you go to skyrimnexus.com the list is neverending, there is also the Nexus Mod Manager which takes care of installing and managing (even keeps track of updates) 99% of the mods just by clicking on a link on the website.
