To SUN: well now that I think about it maybe I should have gotten 2x1gb but do they overclock the same? alright you gotta understand this is my first build and my first step in to overclocking world besides I could always upgrade in the future anyways. Right now this computer build was called project "blue" just because the whole theme of the computer is blue, neon,led,etc.
another reason why I started this project was to get the 3700+ to the same speeds of the FX-57. Now I know the differances between them (speed, unlocked multitplyer etc) but they have the same core so I should be able to do it.
lol yeah my video card is pretty sad but for a FX 5500 its alright I really like the dual VGA ports it has and it takes some load of the CPU. That was my plan to wait it out until DX10 comes and hopefully buy a brand new 7900??
To brad62249: lol yes that thing is crazy big!! I should be able to get the same temps as your brother-n-law but I also heard that the Asus A8n32 board runs a little hotter then others, I guess I will find out tommarrow hopefully! anyways here is another pic for ya,
