aevm - that's a nice jump
I'm waiting for the that upgraded from a 486dx to pop up.
General - ACK! Can't believe I forgot the mobo. Gigabyte P35-ds3R revision 1.
One note on this MOBO, you have to hit ctrl-F1 to access memory timings in the BIOS. That stumped me for a while.
The New mobo layout also helped lower temps on my 7800GTX from 90C load to 70C load so I'll be doing the BIOS volt-mod today to see if I can get some better clocks out of it.
