Thanks guys for the comments, btw
Mind asking her where she got it? My desk is about 1 more bump from crashing to the floor.

Sweet...we have similar setups too, except i have dual 17" monitors, logitech z-2300, and audigy 2 zs.

Im kinda jealous of the package your memory came in...myn came in some cheap plastic case with some card board with yellow/red/blue strips behind the memory .

If you decide to overclock later...i prob can help you out since we have almost identical setups .

nice job on first pc build. at least you believed in yourself that you could build a computer, unlike others that keep doubting themselves.

Thanks guys

Fat Clown: Yea, my old Dell was bought clear back in 2000, with a GeForce MX card =), so yea, its pretty much like Night and Day. This PC is basically the PC I go to sleep dreaming about one day owning.

I know this is the wrong forum, but I have heard I can run this thing at 3.0-3.2 GHZ Stable.....I have no clue how to OC, I basically just know that you have to do it in BIOS somehow. I have found a few OCing Walk-Throughs, but nothing with my 6400 C2D, and A5B Deluxe. Also I would like to know how to adjust my Memory Timing, and why is this done?

Anyone want to shed light on this?

This morning playing FSX I had a few Framerate slowdowns, I was shocked! Im thinking if I upgrade to 3.2ghz, I won't have this problem. (I am running FSX on Loaded graphics though, and widescreen, but still)
