Bwahaha, yea the quotes are all sorts of messed up... So, yeah 45fps with max settings 8xaa is nice and all, but i'm still crashing with in 10 minutes of any game =(, cpu back to default, still happening.
as to the power issue, next time i see my electrician company owning neighbor i'm going to ask him if he has a watt-o-meter... couldnt find one at home depot, lowes, radioshack, or any of the local hardware stores, so i had to order one and it wont be here till tuesday, along with my 1300w psu.
think i may add on some ram to that order, as iv'e been using this free 8gigs i got from newegg for 2 years now... lol (since i upgraded from SD in my celeron tower!)
last but not least... Crashes to black monitors is normally not a cpu crash right? cpu oc crashes normally result in bsod n such...
