If you have figures of an overclocked Q6600, could you add them?

That would be a more sensible price point to go from.

All the memory dividers are handled exclusively by the CPU, there are no positive dividers. You don't need memory bandwidth - it has it in spades anyway.
All the Rampage II offers is the extra % at the extreme end because it has higher quality parts, it doesn't "unlock" unique features (afaik).

My Abit ip35 Pro motherboard gets my e6750 to 3.6Ghz on air, and was about £80 when I bought it. The 4GB memory pack was about £75 I think.
So to even contemplate spending over £230 on a motherboard and further crazy amounts on DDR3 memory plus the CPU is unthinkable right now.

Interesting note regarding HPET. However MS stated HPET should be enabled for Vista regardless, and configured to match either 32/64 according to whichever varient of Vista is installed. Interesting ASUS changed the BIOS name for this, Gigabyte labels it by name.
