stick with a 2400 XT, then go and get a 8800GTX/s. Sucks man, I was thinking about WC, but i'll just go for the 9500 for LGA775

i'll prob end up going 1066, there goes 450 though! where lookin at at least 550
The P35-DS3R supports both DDR2 800 and DDR2 1066. There isn't a need to go with the DDR2 1066. Just get the Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 and you're set.

well, just wondering, what makes it resistant to not damaging hardware? and is it really expansive? (guessing it is...)

The liquid i used was supposed to be dielectric (non conductive) but i was away from my pc for about 2 weeks and my room mate calls me up and is like "your comp isnt starting up" i show up a week later and there is dried up crap all over my card and the bottom of my case. I mean like half the fluid in the resevior! my roommate is an idiot... If i would have caught it that day, it wouldnt have been a problem. right now i've cleaned it off real well and have to wait to see if it still wants to work... what a pain, im not gonna w/c anymore!

w/c can be some scary stuff, i bet its worth it tho, especially if you can get your e6750 to 4.5ghz

They are oils. plain and simple. one of the best types is a low viscosity silicon oil. it runs for about $180/5gallons.
