Yeah, but there are people who don't have anything at all. It's a great feeling to get a new computer. I forever will miss all of my old ones. I actually still use them, haha.

the 2.0 pci-e support doesn't really matter much in your current situation (or mine either to be honest), you could google "bsel mod" for that pentium D if your motherboard doesn't OC worth a damn, that mod is basically OCing without actually OCing, it changes your default settings so you don't have to OC...

If you're not running Catalyst 8.12, do it. They're the best drivers so far by a long way. I haven't tried Catalyst 9.1 yet but 8.12 was perfect.
