nice dude, really nice. Do you really need to spen all that cash for a 3.2? I bought a 2.6 a few weeks ago and i've got it to 3.25 easy enough, ran for prime95 for over 10 hours w/ no errors so i'm imagining i can pull a bit more out of it. As far as makers for the 5900, I've heard albatron is good but I know absolutely nothing about those cards, I'll just stick w/ my radeons for the time being.


What are your plans for this computer btw?

buddy 10 hours of prime 95 is solid enough :D

3.2 lol Half of your cpu would be idling and wouldnt get used unless your using folding@home.. you wouldnt really need 3.2ghz unless your hard core gfx animation and games these days run fine on 2.5ghz+ even lower then that But if money is not a worry. Then Buy all means dont listen to ous Money Watching people bull gaurding people :) overclocking's sole purpose is to save hella money and make faster :P/ show off your skills.

which segate drives did you go with? 7200rpm, 10k or 15k? well no matter which way you went, you'll get performance over any ide drive... 320mbps sustained instead of burst rates upto 133.


zalman coolers are known to be very quiet, I run one one my opteron 244 and it does a nice job with limitted noise (till my dumb butt changed the fan over to a vantec tornado). you can take a look at thier products here
