Haha, thanks. I was lookin at gettin a 7800GT, but since the 7900GT is out now, and it costs the same as a 7800GT did, I'm goin with it.

Will not argue with you about overclocking, be that way...
If you're not overclocking, then do not get a Opteron proccessor, the 4400 x2 is a good suggestion.
AS5 is a thermal compound(obviously will not void your warranty) Most Heatsinks that come with AMD Cpus are applied with AS5 already.
What is it with you people and warranties? There is nothing a phone call to customer service can't get you, even if you overclocked your opteron 165 to 7GHZ or something and it ends up dieing on you.
CPU can not actually die from overclocking, your computer will shut off before the CPU is even near the level where it will be harmed.
I just want to make sure that I will have a warranty, and won't have to deal with going to the Customer Trades Act and what not, since I know that your warranty is void if you OC your CPU.
I'm sure AMD wouldn't replace it if you break a rule that they have written in their manuals/website.
Also, about the AS5, are you talking about the stuff in the tube? Or the stuff that already comes stuck on the heatsink?
