    Potential new Upgrade!

    The new build will mainly be for Gaming, hence why i am setting up the Sata drive. The only problem wiv upgraded the CPU, would be that I would have to get a new MBord aswell, and most probably a new GFX card, since the current one is AGP :( Going to Intel is just not an option for me, and...

    WinVista -> DirectX10 -> Hardware -> Questions!

    There is never a good time to upgrade lol but i would follow gygabite's advice and wait until the release of the new Windows. That way you can insure compatibility, or wait and see about any major teething problems before you go and spend your hard earned cash :D -Adam

    Yer, i had that problem before with voltage rails being displayed as out using SiSandra. The only way to really find out is to get hold of a multimeter, and then jump start your PSU. Test the voltages there, then when its running your PC, and then under heavy load, and see what the fluctuations...

    Creative Soundblaster 128 PCI

    Main point is that you are best off sticking with your current on-borad sound set-up till you hopefully get that X-FI upgrade. Ive used a SB 128 PCI before, and they sound ok, but it just wont be any better than your current sound is :) -Adam
