I'm about to give your suggestion a shot (even though as I said, this is a fresh install of Win7) and will report back either way if it works or not.

It should also be noted for others that it doesn't matter what BIOS revision this board was running before I got it, since a) I updated it before doing anything else, and b) irregardless of that, the hard drives being used between the build this board came from previously and my fresh build are completely, totally different. Plus the fact that this is a fresh install of Win7 either way. Besides, since there is no correlation between what's flashed to the board, and what drivers are being used in Windows, the above points are essentially moot.

One question your suggestion of chipset drivers brings up though... if what you're telling me is true, and Win7 doesn't ship with the necessary drivers to to allow the board's 590 chipset to run properly/stably (it should, since Win7 is far newer than the 590 chipset, plus it's not like the 590 is obscure hardware), then basically what this means is that every time I would want to reinstall Win7 (or any other OS for that matter) that I'm going to require these working sticks of RAM that are running in the board now as spares to get the OS & Nvidia drivers installed, before swapping in a set that won't run without the Nvidia drivers? This certainly would be a first for me, and I've been at this (computing) for ~20 years now... but hey, stranger things have happened I suppose...

I'll let you know shortly!

As Chippy said, 8gb total.But unless you do lots of video encoding or the like 4gb is plenty.

Good luck

Gyro, tried your chipset drivers suggestion... no change, problems remain.

I tried another couple things while I was at it. Different power supply yielded no success, even with nothing but the bare essentials connected. Nor did trying both Memtest86+ or GoldMemory 5.x on Hiren's BootCD, both version 9.9 & 10.1. Hard lockup before the programs even fully load and begin testing. (meaning that it's not the drivers, nor Windows, this is a hardware-level issue).

I tried re-downloading & re-flashing BIOS 5002 also, after which I pulled the battery for 10 min, and reset to defaults. No change.

Using either one of the two Mushkin 2GB sticks I picked up yesterday allows me to get into Win7 just fine, and can run stress tests for as long as I like, regardless of which slot the one module occupies (i.e they all work), but as soon as I introduce both modules to ANY combination of slots, the machine refuses to do what it's asked. Memtest86, Win7, Linux live CD, etc... Nothing works.

I also just tried both one, and then two out of my 4 Corsair XMS2 modules, and I can do the same thing with them... in fact I have two of them populating A2/B2 right now @ 800 5-5-5-18 2T, stock JEDEC voltage, and I'm typing this out on the machine now. Just finished a stress test on them too, no issues at all. I also had them both in A1/B1 and there was no problems there either.

This really doesn't make much sense, does it? Defective board perhaps?

Should I try returning the Mushkin Blackline 800, 5-4-4-12 @ 1.8, and trying to get some normal, regular, non-EPP, non-SLI, run-of-the-mill DDR2-800 RAM? It would seem that's all my board likes in all four slots at one time...

True but the 9800 GTX is just as good if not better than 2 9600 GT's
and the phenom should be pulling double my athlon's score

So i would say someting is wrong there

Edit:
How are those cyclone 460's performing, still deciding if i want the cyclones
or the XFX SC 460's
