I might be interested in this if I was pretty much guaranteed a 4GHz OC.Im at 3.6 on an ASUS P5N E32sli Premium WiFi / 4GHz OCZ Titanium (well worth the upgrade from 2GB even on XP for general multitasking smoothness).
Seems about 4.4GHZ is max possible (with the Gigabyte X48 mobo)(Is there a better one for this task)
I know IL2 wont LOOK any better but will I see good boosts in other newer games?

Wait till May 2009, till Oleg release requjirement (hopefully) for SoW. Nehalem is rond the corner althoug the processor migh be not suitable for gaming, at least prices for E8xxx will be lowered..
