Best wishes stan, you crunched for a good cause and hopefully you're seeing some of the benefits of it now. I hope the experimental chemotherapie goes well. On another note i'll be upgrading my rig soon as I won a Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P (AMD DDR3) on ebay for £28. The seller couldn't install an OS on his machine without it crashing on installation but could boot linux fine from a cd. I fail to see how that problem has anything to do with the motherboard so I think i've got a great deal I'll give my old board and ram (ddr2 version of the same board) to my bro and get him a quad in the next few weeks so i'll put that under stans name too.
