k thanks that really helps. my lack of knowledge of AMD is really confusing me... 3800 overclocking to the same as a 4200 could have cost me in the long run.<br />
what price would you say "go for it" for an x2 3800?

I believe it should be. It's a good PSU with 29A on the 12V rails. That should be enough for a 7900GS and that CPU.<br />
<br />
Also, do note that I changed the mobo yet again. I went with an Asus based on the nForce4 Ultra-D. Again, a good overclocker, although not as hot as the DFI Lanparty. It should play nice with that X2 3800+ though.

The CDBHE 0532 seems to be a really good stepping, a quick google shows people getting 2.7GHZ<br><br>
I'll add you to my MSN next time I log on but I'll warn you that I *VERY* rarely go on =P

is 155$ US a good price? thats like 170 CDN + shipping/customs. but i love the idea of helping people on here sell their stuff, as opposed to NCIX (who i like, but you know)

If you're still considering an S939 setup, you could get <a href="http://www.overclock.net/sale/127943-sale-biostar-geforce-m-9-939-a.html" target="_blank">this</a> mobo from a member here.<br><br>
Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

yeah it is, but you should still be able to use the card.<br><br>
What case will you be getting for it? I don't suggest a SFF m-ATX case if you plan to OC a lot.
