Yep, I'm good now. Overclocking killed my MBR a couple of times, and I just had to battle Windows Genuine Advantage for an hour to get it to accept my old code . No idea why it un-registered or whatever after fixing the MBR.

Anyway, the processor is no longer 1-hr OCCT stable at 320x9 . Maybe my last stress test was with only 2GB of RAM... I honestly forget. Anyway, I can never remember which timings I'm supposed to manually adjust (the standard 3-4-4-7 and the command rate) so I bet RAM is what was causing errors. Although OCCT said the error was "detected on core 1" so I don't know for sure.

I've reached a wall at 1.42v (I don't want to increase it any higher). CPU is at 2.65Ghz. I'm going to start tightening up my timings and Hypertransport speeds.

On another note, I'm getting an 8800GT to replace the SLI 7800GTs. Does anyone have 8800s in SLI?

I used to. You won't notice an increase by adding the second card honestly. Anything higher than an 8800GT, you will not see any sort of increase what so ever. Not until you upgrade to a newer CPU.

That's what I figured. I had a similar setup years ago with my EVGA nf4 SLI, X2 3600 and 8800GT. The 8800GT should be fine. I was thinking of getting a GTX 460 just so I can have a card I can upgrade to, but 8800GTs run for 50 and I won't feel bad for keeping this system after I upgrade.

jimwest I was running a few 9800GT's in SLI and then I SLI'd a 8800GT w/one of those 9800GT's and the system ram fine.

I'm sure they work fine, I'm just questioning the performance. With my 8800GT and X2 3600 @ 2.6 I wasn't getting the best out of the GPU. So I don't think two of them will make a huge difference.

You will see a difference in GPU limited games. I wouldn't hesitate running them in SLI, just make sure you crank the resolution to the max and texture/detail settings to the max. Your CPU will surely bottleneck at lower resolutions, but above say, 1600x1200 or 1680x1050, you'll still see some nice gains in GPU limited titles.
