Thanks guys...
Juggernaut, what kind of scores are you getting with that x1950pro? My friend had one and got 16K in 3DMark03, (I know, old, but only one I could find). I got just shy of 18k with my 7900gs, so I'm really thinking he messed something up... I keep hearing they're so good and stuff.

Hmm... I think something messed up with my computer cuz when I overclocked the GPU, the score dropped from ~17,700 stock to 12k and something. Anyone know whats up with that? I assume its my 430w powersupply, it only has 18a on the 12v and I hear they like 20a....
I got a new 500w power supply with (2) 20a's on the 12v, so that'll help right. I'm not sure what is wrong, I'm checking the drivers right now to see what I got, I downloaded new ones that are supposed to be good for overclocking. I'm using coolbits and rivatuner. I also downloaded the new beta of ATITool to try. I never had this problem before, it was just crank them up and test.

I also ordered new parts to upgrade my pc, I got:
-Ultra Aluminus (silver, girlfriend's pick)
-Asus P5B-e
-Arctic Cooling Accelero X1 (GPU)
-Diamond 7.1 Xtremesound
-2gb of Antec AmpX ddr2 1000
-I also got an assortment of coolers (zalman, vantec) and some little fans for the motherboard, I'm hoping with that and the case it will be good

edit - this powersupply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

Well just a little update in case anyone is really reading this... I uninstalled the old drivers and installed modified 92.91's and have been using ATITool so far. And well, so far I'm at 685/785 stable with the stock heatsink and stock volts. Yay! I ordered a new actic cooling heatsink, so I'm hoping to push it a little farther, (650/800? maybe). I'm testing for stabality right now, but so far so good. I got over 100k Aquamarks and 20,149 on 3dMark03, (only benchies I got on me). This is with a mild overclock on the cpu, of 2.0ghz... This Asrock board I can't get to overclock at all...
