The 955 a faster and cheaper processor mainly due to socket F1 boards being pricey for a budget line.
Also shouldn't motherboard socket price be a factor?
Doing something for the more normal computing needs is great though.

What I reckon may also be a good idea for an article, if you can stand suggestions, would be something along the lines of a Top Gear style challenge: All you guys have a fixed budget of say £400, (or whatever) and have to get a MoBo, CPU & HSF, GPU & Memory, (with the Case, PSU, HDD etc standard).
You can all get whatever gear you like within the confines of the budget and see who can build the best rig possible for a set range of challenges.
I don't know if that'd be possible, but I think it would make a pretty fantastic read - and would offer the chance for serious bragging rights...

And yes, that is the only useful information in this post.
