Woot got it all installed and got win 7 up and running, now just hours of installing programs and updates.....running great right now.

Let us know how that core unlocking goes buddyand im not sure why anyone is knocking the stock cooler...go have a look at what some of the core unlockers are doing and you will see quite a few have unlocked and ran stock with GREAT temps on the 550...

And what a great comment from jeff...im surprised hes not running an intel setup and said amd sucks while hes at it

Nice build. I would go for 4890 over gtx275 though, and that way you can crossfire later too.
edit: oops I didn't see you ordered, still a really good build though. Good luck with everything.
