    i have the chance to get a Asus p5n-e sli & 2gb ocz gold pc6400 800mhz for next to nothing from a freind , i am in the posistion to buy a m/b & ram full price which is what i will be doing asap anyway , its just cos my mate is upgrading and i can get a few bits really cheap. im not really any good at o/c ( i could only get my old opty 165 to 2.2 ):sad: so i dont suppose i will be doing much o/c as 2.4 is enough for my gaming ( though it would be nice to get a 3ghz pc):) so i suppose i have just answered my own Q , but any ideas will be read and thought about or i can buy my sig rig from same freind , i used to keep his garden clean & tidy for money before my short stay at one of her majestys establishments plus he lives very near me so we are good mates, i know some of you will say just take the sig rig but i have and own an intel C2D E600 so it would be a shame to not use it and i suppose i just want a better system ....

  21. is there anywhere i can find a "DFI STREET " wallpaper/ desktop
  22. i have now finnished setting up my pc but one thing conserns me and that it that because of the N/bridge cooler i can not have my cpu fan pointing out towards the back of my case because the clip will not close because the N/B cooler is in the way , so i have mounted it pointing forwards towards the front of the case but its blowing all the hot air directly over my ram . is this a potential problem , will the ram over heat ??? i have orderd a new side pannel for my Armor with a 25cm intake fan which will blow cool air over everything .
