I have had this system for almost a year. At first I was running WOW and Counter Strike at a blister 1900x1200 and everything was so damn smooth and fast. Now it seems that my performance has just gone to hell. I have questioned getting it checked out since I have been screwed over before. I have been looking into some of the new boards and the new 7800 video card. Should I pay to get that system checked out, or just go ahead and replace the MB, Proc and vid card??? If I change to a PCI-E Board I can add another card down the road and what not. Plus the board I have now seems to be pretty buggy.
