Very nice guys! Wow, a 2.7 Ghz is an entire Ghz + more than mine!
Not completely. I am overclocking my 2.3GHz CPU. But the Intels are perfect for overclocking. It only adds another 10 degrees celcius to the temperature. In the past summer, my max temp would be 47C. Try that with an Athlon. :P

It's true, I haven't OC'd this one yet, but that's what's 'cool', lol, about Intel...they just don't fry within reason. If I'm figuring Celcius right, mine runs about 32C normally...much, much room for OC'ing.

Btw, I think I've had most every major brand name of hard-drives. I know some people think Maxtor sucks (all depends on your experiences); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES but to date: All 3 Maxtors (200GB total) are running strong, and the new 100GB that's on the way should run as well. My bad luck has been with Fujitsu and Seagate, among others.
* Wintress knocks on wood for good luck ;)

I also have SbLive 5.1 Tomas, I just need the decent speakers to go with it, but as it is I annoy my neighbors with what I have already :P

And oh yeah, I use a 400 watt power supply. A while back, the fan went out. Everyone told me I'd have to buy a new ps. Bullsh*t...I just bought a $5 fan and spliced it in...runs perfectly!

MX is a cheap-version of the original GF4...

Buy the TI-whatthef*ckever.
