@ Axel, the bit-tech boys have said DDR3 wont be mainstream for another year or so if not more, I don't want two 22"s I want one 24", so I am getting th best one out there. Again, for raid, it is software raid unless I get a card and to be honest, I don't want to do that either. I cannot stand using razer mice, hence the G5, and I want the EVGA card due to its cooler and the step up (so I can get the ultra if it is good). As for the ram, I may swap is for dominator, I am on a project in a hotel at the moment so there is no point ordering because I wont be at home, but I'm still getting stonkingly fast stuff that is DDR2. @ Dimebar, I think, from what I have read on the flex XLC I may switch to some 8500 dominator, not sure at the moment, I'll see whats going down when I order it next weekend. I'll see if any of the top end stuff is on offer as well OR I'll stick with it lol I might ask scan if they will flash the bios for me as I don't want to screw it up. As for the Freezer 7, I'm not oc'ing yet, but I've got one on my mates comp on a EX6800 and it more than capable. p.s. I'm sorry if I sound rude but this wasn't really a thread to change the spec just to let you know what I am getting, if you want to spend your money on different combinations that is your choice, and this is mine....apart from that ram...of course.
