You bought ultimate though, which means that you choose 32 or 64 bit during installation
I hear you there dude! A PCI-E x1 version of anything would come in handy.
zr_ox, 64-bit OEM actually, no choice, what are you running mate?
Duste....right on brother, right on!
If i was you Mother-Goose i wouldnt even buy Vista but thats me , Go for the 32bit you will love it.
I have Vista Ultimate (non OEM) got it free from work . Got my GPU block, connected it, filled res with water started the pump...pssssss water poruing out of the rear radiator
Starting to think this PC is not supposed to ever work I have been running 64bit on a Dell Optiplex 745 temporarily, with no problems though.
I got a refund for it as a few of my plugin items dont have drivers, once they are supported i'll get it
I should have said USB items come to think of it, my MP3 player doesn't have any drivers, neither does my phone, two items I really need it for.
I am also tempted to wait until I have a bit more cash and get the retail instead of OEM so I have option of both versions and multiple installs if my hardware goes nuts
you mean when your hardware goes nuts, right?
That's the best option!
LOL fod I know what you are trying to say , but you repeated my sentence! hehe
@ culley, yeh thats my decision now
just updated the ordered spec
That BFG 8800 is gonna be wicked! your system is gonna be nice!!
yes, my future system will be very nice...
ha trig'! you have to find me mwhahahaha
@ culley, hope so I swapped out the EVGA stock 8800gtx for the oc version by bfg that was actually cheaper! weird
good man, i have the 8800gtx oc as a free upgrade to my rma'd 8800,. took 10 days from usa - uk as uk were out of stock brilliant warrenty support.
I have heard similar stories so I am very happy with my choice
All the kit from the first order bar the case has turned up today (case should be here tomorrow, nice!!).
First impressions from looking at stuff in the boxes:
Daaaamn the Flex XLC is heavy AND OMG the 8800 is freaking huge! I couldn't visualise the dimensions, lol held my 9800 next to it and burst out laughing!
Although, without a doubt, the coolest things that i got are the bfg stickers, my personal fave is : omgwtfbfgsauce.....who would put that on anythign?!?!?!
omgwtfbfgsauce pwns...post up some picks of the kit...if you got time to kill
ooooh im gonna, when the stacker has arrive tomorrow im gonna group it all together and take a pic lol
