thx for all the replies here. first amd system ever just kinda curious how it will do. cant wait to try bf2 and fear on the new system. one thing though I've got 2 antecs and 3 rosewill psu's here now in various builds and believe it or not the rosewill keeps my voltages MORE stable then antec. Was running my current rig 3.4@3.856 (227 fsb) running 1:1 on kingston value ram (laugh if you must) cpu at 1.36v ram at 2.7v . didn't like the heat from the prescott oven though so turned it back down

Rosewill is a much better brand than ya'll'd think. I put rosewill PSU's in all of my customer's PC's. They all work flawlessly and last. I personally have 4 sticks of Rosewill ram in my PC. The company has something going, and I like it! Cheap prices and good quality.

yeah, um... okay... it's hardly a coincidence. Don't be so sure of yourself Ste... Trust me, not everyone here thinks your opinion is right on.
