Thanks, the country nice iyah. Well i didnt get the freezer, the USPS "misplaced" it .. still waiting for my insurance payout so i can cop another. temps were like 59 on the stock cooler with cracking stock paste ... since cleaned the heatsink and replaced it with artic silver but the lack of a videocard is holding me from further testing.
Can UPS ship to you? And are you using AGP or PCI-E?

well i have a courier account to ship stuff to me, their warehouse is in florida, so my friend was USPS'ing it to me and it got "lost". UPS can ship to me but .. $$ is an issue. PCI-e cards, was going x1900 AIW initially, but those seem to have vanished, then i ordered a 7900GS,but it was in the lost package. going x1950 now, if/when i get the insurance money.

Yeah mate go for the MSI X1950PRO you found, its a STEAL for its price.

EDIT: Man, if i ordered from newegg, and built a totally new PC i would be saving around $300... compared to the cheapest dealer in australia.
its that bad ...

same here still if i never ordered overseas id never be rocking the stuff i have now

E2140 has a 7x multi... get the E4300 man, then down the RAM ratio by one step and oc to 266 fsb. With the Mobo, I would get the DFI Infinity 965-S DARK. That mobo is a monster overclocker, has solid capacitors as well.

You know the 7900GS isnt that bad, the stock cooler sucks though, but just bolt on some aftermarket cooling and overclock it.
Personally I would wait till July and see what the 2600 will bring, if waiting is not an option then I would go for the 8600GTS, it's mediocre at stock but can be bought in the UK now already for around £100 which is cheaper than the 1950Pro, add to this pretty insane overclocking on even the stock cooling like 770 core/2150 memory and you have a DX10 card that beats the 1950pro in DX9 that is DX10 ready for less price!

Um 8600GTS is SLOWER than the X1950PRO in DX9. If you are referring to the synthetic benchmarks, I thought you would have known that drivers are behind its performance... whilst in games it does poorly. On stock cooling it will not fly like a rocket. You are already hitting temps of 80*C on stock cooling-I would not think why you would want to overclock! Onto DX10, no DX10 games are even out yet, most of them are still in beta/alpha stages and are due to release at the end or maybe next year, whats the point in buying a new graphics card like that when u are bound to upgrade? Why compromise?

Here in AUS the 8600GTS is 20% more expensive

Um, you obviously choose your reviews to read, I can show you a number where the 8600GTS beats the 1950Pro in over half the game tests, lets forget about synthetic benches, add that to the fact that you have had to add aftermarket cooling to your 1950Pro as most have because it's coolers generally are poor all rounders, add the fact that a 1950Pro generally clocks like a mule, if it was really any good you would not need to flash the BIOS to get it to a decent level, add to this that overclocked the 1950Pro will not match the overclocked GTS and.....UM I did say in UK the GTS is cheaper. So, I am pretty sure I know what the best deal in the UK is......ohhhh and I missed one small point, the 1950Pro wont be playing any DX10 games! :D

why all the hype about dx10? anyone ever considered that 2nd gen dx10 cards will be way more efficient?

Yeah but still DX10 games arent out yet. Whats the point?! Its more logical to get an 8800GTS than an 8600... Well, I tried the 8600GTS, guess what in NFS:C it chokes to death.

Meh... Need new RAM...

I agree about the DX10 totally and I actually think R600 will be better in it than the opposition, their architecture is totally DX10 orientated, thats why they dont perform so well in DX9. I hear what you are saying about the 8600GTS also, I too think it's disapointing for it's price and really do hope the 2600XT betters it wheteher in DX9 or DX10.

Getting to CPU's however, just slotted in me new E6600, broke me Infinity cooler in the pr0cess so am having to use stock cooling but have already booted stable at 3.7Gig and ran SuperPI, temps were too high tho so have pegged her back a bit until I can sort out this cooling.

Am Currently running at 3.6Gig on 1.45V and coretemp is keeping each core at around 33C each at idle which should be OK for the moment.
