Pridurak i disagree with one of your hardware products. Your mobo should be reconsetered. The MSI is not the best mobo there is and since 939 mobos are all basicly the same price...why not get the best for a few bucks more.

The Abit AV8-3rd Eye Via K8T800 Pro is a later mobo, witch was created for the faster Athlon 64 bits. Such as Athlon 3500 and up.
Its built for over clocking the 64's like no other and is very stable and very flexible. It has dual ram hhd set up 4 ddr slots. It can be pushed very hard. For a 939 mobo its the way to go!

Finished With TF.
