I also played musical video cards, crammed 2x 460s and the 465 in my EVGA P55 FTW, and moved the 470 to my ASUS P5WDH Deluxe (Xeon X3210 @ 3GHz) which freed up 512MB of system memory and I can address 3.25GB of my 4GB now (975X chipset limit). The 470 is getting 3:10-3:30 per WU in BOINC at the stock 608MHz, and I am overclocking to 725MHz shortly.
I told you I was jealous of that Seasonic PSU. The TX750 was a tough PSU, but not very efficient. I have one that the power cord is melted permanently into the PSU casing
