I got the same board that mgcook has. It was 197 after rebates from buy.com.

Try download accelerator plus (speedbit.com). It doesn't work with all downloads (such as anything from microsoft.com), but for most cases it does. It splits the download into 5 parts, kinda like a torrent, and downloads each part at the same time, so if a website limits a user's bandwidth, then a program like DAP helps because say you have a 10 mbit connection but the site limits bandwidth to 2 mbits/sec, well DAP will have 5 parts of the download going at once so you'll get your 10 mbits.

I prefer it over firefox's download app.

Its only a 20$ rebate so its not that big of a deal. So far ive gotten all of my rebates back other than my antec900 and my corsair rebate. Have the ocz and evga rebate sitting in the car right now, just havent made it to the bank. As far as 3dmark06 is downloading, started it while i was at lunch and just left it.

Btw, i finally got into the demo for crysis and it looks pretty sweet. Running everything at high but no AA and 1920x1200 so far no slowdowns that i can see, but i need to figure out how to turn on the built in FPS display so i can tweak it a little.

Ya this whole job thing is getting in the way. I was mainly just trying to figure out the max overclock. Apparently though, the cards coming out of fry's are either some wierd batch or misflashed because they are coming at KO speeds rather than stock. And im not the only one who has noticed this. Basically anyone who got a card from fry's is getting the same 650core and 950 memory speed that mine have. EVGA 8800gt KO for 229, woo.

The fry's add for 229 was up monday and promptly got pulled, so if you didnt get in, you wont get it for that price. I've been hearing they will be relisted at 259 once they actually have some back in stock.
