As you can see from my profile below I am currently running an Intel machine...I just checked the UPS website today at work at my<br>
OPTY 146<br>
7600GT<br>
ASUS A8N-Sli Mobo has been delivered...<br>
Now just cant wait till 4 comes so I can go home and install the stuff.<br>
I will post screen shot of benchies when I get home.<br>
Then give me alittle time to tweak it and see what kind of OC I can pull from it.<br><br>
Anyone know what I can expect to get from Aquamark???

I get around 81k with my setup, so I would imagine with the extra L2 cache, you might get a little better.<br><br>
EDIT: You SHOULD get better, is what I meant to say.

That would be an option, of course, someone will come in here and say "WAIT FOR DX10!!!" but eh, I say "Be happy with what you can work with."<br><br>
Congrats on the new build, if I didn't say it before, nope, didn't.

</div>Dont know the stepping as it is sitting at home and I am sitting at work...AHHHHGGGGG.....<img src="/images/smilies/lmaosmiley.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Lmaosmiley" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
that is why I only ordered 1 7600GT because I knew DX10 was just around the corner....No sence in getting a 7950GTX2 when DX10 is around the corner...Is what I will probably do is if DX10 comes out in the next 90 days is do EVGA's step up program to get one <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

</div>Thats what happened to me, lol I got my 7800gt and 3 weeks later the 7900's came out. So I steped up at no cost at all well except for shipping. Another reason why I recommend eVGA.

DAMN UPS.....So I get home and all that arrived was the vid card, PSU and Mobo....The CPU came from a different newegg facility and was put on a differrent truck...Needless to say I got everything BUT the CPU....Stupid UPS...Their Customer Service people sucked to...They could not give me a straight response on what happeneded. Finally talked with the supervisor today and am getting a refund on my shipping costs...I told the supervisor next time I will use Fed Ex....So I now have to wait till today to HOPEFULLY get my Opty...It better be a good stepping for the wait.

Sorry mate, (woah, aussie attack) anywho, that sucks that you have to wait again. I love when those things happen (easy sarcasm). Im eager to see some benches when you get it up and running though. Ill be keeping an eye out. Again, nice choices, specially on that video card. It will serve you nicely. I got mine OCed to 630/1600 with the stock cooler.
