Very nice rig.

I just need to wait a little while longer to upgrade my Video card to a 8800 .

Yes, lol, I fixed the #DMark06 score to the correct one of 12870 XD Missed a digit there :-P

And yes, I just went with a TT for now. I sealed all the hoses with plumber tape and put a layer of apoxy around the water block to ensure no leaks whatsoever. Another 1 month (2 max) I'll upgrade, don't worry!

Those framerates are of course with everything maxed out, and nVidia control panel is set to AA x16Q.

Thanks a lot for the comments. It's a great rig, considering I upgraded from an old Compaq Persario which had a socket A 798MHz P.O.S. with 512 MB of unknown RAM, very slow. Had some old 30gig craptastic hard drives. Took me two minutes just to load Firefox. Now, I click anything and it doesn't lag for a second.

Yes that motherboard is a waste of money...the 650i beats it in SLI performance for almost 1/4th the price lmao.
