that looks like a very nice hsf.
And as for going to 3.0Ghz, well it's hard to say since I have no idea how the quad cores will overclock, but if they are similar to core 2 duos in overclocking then you should be able to reach 3Ghz.

Look, when you're here asking for us to take time to write a response for you, the least you could do is use proper spelling and grammar so we don't have to DECODE your messages! Plus, it just makes you look like an immature kiddie to everyone, it's not "cool".

You cannot convert a graphics card to a physics card. It is impossible. There really is no point in having a physics card right now anyway, because almost all games will not utilize it.

i read about it here http://www.techreport.com/onearticle.x/9610, they used some Havok FX software to perform physics calculations on the GPU but it wouldnt be as good as having an independant physics card .
also heres a link to the havok FX website http://www.havok.com/content/view/187/77/
Personally i wouldnt reccomend buying a physics card just yet tho or even using one as not many games support physics cards

Yeah, but that isn't what he's talking about. He wants to convert it to a dedicated physics card, whereas this thing is just performing physics computations on the existing GPU.

^^imao but its a start , i knew it was in inposible to convert a gpu to a ppu but its cheaper than buying a dedicated ppu also f you have two gpu's in sli you can use one for graphics and one for physics calculations
