Default Finaly back

hey guys !! id like to thank everyone for helping me build my new system.. omg after sooo much hassle and troubleshooting i finally got my comp running and so far its running smooth =]. The only troubles is i dont think i put enough thermal paste because its only 38 c at idle... >< oh well


CPU: AMD Athlon 3000+ Venice 1.8ghz [ gona oc ]
Motherboard: DFI Lanparty nForce 4 Ultra-D
RAM: PQI Value 1GiG Duel Channel
Hardrive : 80gb Maxtor Diamond 9
Video Card: eVGA 6600gt [ did anyone else notice a huge price drop? LOL i mean i got it for 169 and if i dont recall i saw it for like 200 before.. oh well =] ]


So yeah im installing WoW right now but my main question is it too late for me to install service pack 2? i just installed xp fresh and i installed my mobo/video card drivers and i installed AIM/WoW.. Is it too late?
