I stand corrected, at the time the 520w Powerstream had 33A on the 12v rail and the Modstream had only 28A. Was the reason I chose the Powerstream.

Hmmm...after reading up on these Conroes my eyes have been opened! I am VERY behind with my AMD / Intel war! Looks like Intel are on the up. Ok, so respecced to the Intel Core 2 DUO E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB), can anyone recommend a motherboard to match the Fatal1ty? All the Intel ones say Crossfire Ready which is ATi is it not? Guessing they won't work with nVidia, yes / no?

Time to take this one to the Intel section with a new post
If you had stayed with AMD you could of gone with a far les expensive X2 4000 or X2 4200+ which would OC as well as the more expensive 5000+

The P5B-Deluxe is pretty much the best board out there for Conroe in terms of overclocking and features.

You can run SLi on a crossfire-ready board with modded drivers

I think I've confused myself, can I run just the one nVidia card on a Crossfire specced mobo or does it have to be ATi? Or does it only count if I want to run in SLi (whihc, I think for now, one of those 8800 babies should be ok )

A CF board will run a single Nvidia card just fine, the thing it won't let you do is SLI
