Yeah, the wiring acutally looks better than that generally, Those pic look really bad, and I was careful to ensure all the open spaces and fan bays are completely clear. still, casemod might be the next big thing. I could use the time to do it now, but I'd rather wait and get everything running before having a go.
ahh i forgot you had something in the way.

Right, well didn't ring them, and no movement by Fri evening, but checked today, and on the website it says: item processing finished, OUTCOME: replaced. Which is good. Also got a 'your order had been dispatched' email. So no explanation or anything, but looks good. YAY! maybe come monday night I'll be a happy man!

I will admit to being worried, if you search for reviews about overclockers, you inevitably read horror stories, but of course, why would you leave a review, unless something went wrong. Anyway:
Good Stuff, overclockers!

Thought I'd post an update:
GPU arrived on tuesday, and hooray! everything works! PC is now up and running, and I've spend what time I've had over the last few days downloading all the programs I need, reflashed the BIOS, ran 3dMark06 (9600 odd. about what you'd expect, stock), and generally drooled over the graphics in Bioshock demo (woo.. freeky game ), Oblivion and X3. What is wonderful, is with my humble 1280x1024 LCD, I can run everything at full specs, and I have not once encountered anything that could remotely be considered slow down.

In fact, its so good, I'm not even sure if its worth overclocking anything! I might just wait until I find I actually need that extra performance hit!

The one thing I am missing is a DVD player... I have a copy of PowerDVD somewhere, but am still yet to find it. Is there a good program that I can download for free?

Anyways, thanks yall for all the help! muchly appreciated!

Nice to hear you have everything set up and running smoothly.

As for DVD playback...windows media 11 should support it natively.
