Ok, my Abit AI7 got fried, dang phone lines. Anyway, I'm going to replace it with the same motherboard, so will I be able to just install the new motherboard and plug all my drives and junk back in and start up the computer like nothing happened? Let me know, thanks!

You should be able to just swap. If you have probs, then you can try doing a repair install of windows.

Are you sure you didn't fry anything else? Have you inspected the rest of the components?

Ya, I brought it to an actual Computer shop that tested everything in it. The modem, the motherboard and a stick of ram were bad. I had 2 gigs of ram, so I think I will be ok with 1.5gb for a while until I send the junk one in. I already have an extra modem. Thank god it didnt get to my 3 day old 6800 GT whew! Thanks and any additional comments are welcome.

Additonal comments? Your system will perform better with 1GB in dual-channel mode than 1.5GB in single-channel, which you'd be forced to use with 3 sticks of RAM.

Concur with Crash on the RAM...it would be around a 5% performance hit or more.

If it's not exactly the same make and model of modem, I would start without it, uninstall the old modem, and shut down to install the new one.

should be more that 5%, it is an Intel CPU that love bandwidth.. I woudl say at least 20%

If you dont have the board yet, see if you can get the IS7 instead. It would work great as a replacement.
