Thanks guys and sorry for posting in the wrong place..
just waiting for vista ultimate from my neibour he works at microsoft and can get decent staff discount,i was thinking about changing the board,as the ds3 only has 1 space for the 8 series g cards and the dq6 scored better on most tests in performancetest v6.1 anyone have the dq6 and know of any shortfalls ? the ds3 is a great board for clocking is this the same with the dq6 ?
also is having 1 gig and 2 x 512 likely to be slowing things down ? as soon as finances allow should be updateing mem to ddr3,
