Man I wish I could find someone dumb enough to sink 6k into a rig like that so I could sell him the same thing for $4,000 and make a 25% profit.

What surprises me is that for years Intel has prevented manufactures from selling O/C'ed chips, now they seem to be condoning, perhaps supporting this.

It will lessen demand for their faster chips somewhat...OK a tiney tiny bit. still a departure from the past yes?

I think the important point here is that they are taking Intel's fastest (Quad Core) CPU and overclocking it.

It can't lessen demand for their faster chips when there are no faster chips. I'm sure somewhere along the line Intel said fine, sell an overclocked computer, but only do it with our fastest chips.
