Ah, good to know.

Was looking at memory and came along these, are they any better/worse than the ocz ones I picked? I know the timings are different, but your thoughts? - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

the OCZ has better timings and is cheaper, get it. but the dominatiors have cool heatsinks and worse timings. go with the OCZ

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

Thanks for all the help guys. I'll have my comp upgraded to i7 in a few days. What performance gain can I expect coming from a q6600 at 3.6ghz, 8gb ddr2 1006 and a hd 4870 512mb?
