Well, I got it done. One little problem with the psu connector, but other than that it's running like a champ. Still getting it all set up but first run with 3dmark03 delivered:

3DMark Score 11827 3DMarks

So I am pretty happy.

This is the best part, I am idling at 34-35C! With the stock intel HSF. I like the temp, although it is kind of loud

Haven't gotten it under full load yet, I will post when I do!

Sorry, but I am just so stoked to get this thing up and running. It's been so long!

So here it is, all done! I was finally able to stress it. Ran it for 2 hrs doing some video decoding at 70-75% processor load. Processor temp never broke 60c.

Now for some pimp new speakers!

They are ghetto as hell I am just trying to decide between a lower end to mid range 5.1 system or a higher end 2.1 system.

koldapu, have you played CS: Source at 1680x1050 on that monitor? It is freakin' unbelievable!!

I would go with a decent 2.1 system. Later on, you can just add another 2 speakers and have a 4.1 system

Center's are kinda useless for gaming really anyways...
