What kind of HTT/overclock can be expected from the DFI motherboard?
There's been reports of the Expox board getting well above 300 Mhz, which is higher than the Winchester can run. It'll run 289x9=2600 Mhz.

Also, make sure the GPU has a component out or that her TV has DVI in.
What's DDL? I picked the Catalina because the Optical/SPDIF passes through Dolby Digital and Dolby DTS to her surround receiver. She doesn't actually have a set of PC speakers, 'cause she has a great home theater system.
