  1. Thanks for keeping me on the path. You are a scholar and a gentleman, even when you're smoking crack. :eek2:
  2. Was reading the reviews on NewEgg on XP Pro X64. http://www.newegg.com/Product/CustRatingRe...N82E16837102034 Sounds tempting as long as I'm starting a new system from scratch anyway. The only problems seem to be finding drivers for old software and printers etc. Wouldn't it be prudent to update almost all your drivers on a brand new install in any case? I'm just thinking that dealing with a new OS is just one more challange in a whole list of challanges in building an OC'ing machine. Isn't that why we're here? Seems like it would be nice not to have upgrade to X64 down the road. Are there terrible problems I'm being naive about?
  3. Hey DFI Rookie...You and I may have some questions in common. I, too am in the process of building an OC'able system. So far my purchases are: Lian Li PC 1200 Plus Case Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR Expert OCZ 530 Powerstream PSU Not willing to spend $1000 on video cards, at least not yet, I went with one: EVGA GeForce 6800 GS http://www.anandtech.com/guides/showdoc.aspx?i=2606&p=3 I am also trying to decide between a higher end Athlon dual core or a lower end Opteron dual core. For the same price, the Athlon is a higher frequency, but the Opteron has double the L2 Cache. And from what I understand, in my limited experience, a 1.8 GHz Opteron can handle being OC'd to the same max as a 2.0 GHz Athlon. I'm going dual core because I also need the system for video editing and Photoshop. Did you see this on Anandtech?: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2591
