Thats a pretty nice setup. How much did it cost you?

I've been meaning to upgrade to C2D.

Looks like a pretty strong build. I'd expect 3.2-3.4GHz in the right circumstances

BTW someone, I wouldn't go for a nForce chipset. They suck for overclocking. Go with a 965P or something. Much better OCing results. I've yet to see an nForce chipset reach over 350FSB..

Just around $1300 w/ shipping. But the DVD's I had, and also the SB X-Fi is getting pulled from another system as well.

There were some cables, fans, and a floppy drive in there too.

Why the ABIT AW9D-MAX? I'm sure you can get better for cheaper.

Well I looked at that...I like the ability to add a second video card in the future. The 965p/g chipset boards don't offer that. Plus, from what I read, the AW9D-Max is pretty good overclocker. I take it you disagree?

I would have gone with the 680i chipset. They can reach a FSB of 500 and have a capability of SLI.

I thought about going with the new eVGA 680i board, but they are pretty new and I haven't seen or read alot about them. That and I had a budget I needed do stick to, which I was already over just a bit...the extra $30 would have caused marital difficulties...

Ok...got everything but the mobo in. Case cool...needs a little modding...but other than that good to go. PS same thing as Mobo. HOWEVER...I think I may have over sized a bit too much with the Thermaltake Typhoon. WOW is that a big cooler. I am not sure if I will send it back or not. Did I mention that it is BIG? HUGE?!

I will try and get a few pictures up tomorrow.
