Alvino, i figured youd see it my way when i through those specs in lol. its rough, had a 100 watt psu and it was dieing and causing my net connection to be horrible so i hooked up a 420watt i had laying around. now its in the floor beside the case since its too big to fit in the case
pffft?...i checked the specs on the ram you mentioned and it does look sweet. im gonna hit up the asus site in a sec to see if a BIOS update will let me hit 3.3v with the ram. i hope. oh, and could you or anyone else shed a little light on the speed ratings on ram for me(latencies x-x-x-x, timings, etc...)? i know jack about that.
i just realized one thing about my case too, theres not alot of space for me to add additional fans. its got an 80mm up front and a 120mm in the back. has intake vents on the bottom front and a vent in the side. i think im gonna pull it out in a sec and see if a fan will fit the side vent.
ive heard the gtx7800's dont get as hot as the 6xxx series cards, that true?
im gonna try to keep this thread going so i can keep getting advice as i go. thanks again for all of the help!
