    You know looking at this, has anyone thought it could be the proc bottle necking it?

    But also please note, that a dual core CPU will not give you any performance increase at the moment since games are single threaded apps.
    Therefore, if you are looking for game performance, the single core might be better.
    Benchmarks are a different story though since they include the CPU score as well.

    hmm, interesting about the stability

    the crashes in internet browsing is a common issue associated with a cpu or ram that is too overclocked/undervoltedm, but i think you may be seeing a pretty large psu issue here

    the best advice i have for you is to swap out pieces one by one, leaving the gpu in there, and see if anything runs well for you. maybe put your x1900 in your friends comp

    no, because it isn't

    look at the gpu score for the aquamark, it goes down. it shouldn't do that, no matter how cpu "bottle necked" it is

    i'm going to start getting angry, real angry, if people don't start to figure out what is meant by cpu bottle necking

    ps - i just realized what i'm going to write my first tpu wiki on
