Plan to as soon as I get my motherboard back.
If I were a betting man, I'd put a tenner down on the Folding@home team to win a Nobel Prize at some point in the future. And you guys would be a massive part of it. Well done.
I'm hoping so. If I have to get a DAC it means I have to spend less on the headphones.
Already did. One guy/gal has given me some really good options at a variety of price points - Ultrasone HFI-680, 780 and Pro 750's, and the Shure SRH 840.

You know what head-fi is like with headphones - so many people want recommendations that you really only have 24 hours to get one, and it is quite often from one person!

What a pain! Just built my computer last night, had everything running smoothly, final lot of Windows updates had just finished and then when it rebooted it doesn't even POST. Black screen and that's it. So far I've figured out one fan header is dead (one of the CPU Fan headers). Not sure what else. Hopefully I can get a replacement from ASRock. Can't find my receipt though. At least I have a record on my credit card.
