Well after waiting patiently for my RAM to arrive, i loaded it in and booted this bad boy up. To my surprise, everything worked just as i had hoped. The only downside is that my onboard LAN, ethernet connection doesnt work. I'm having to use some old PCI network card i found in a box in the attic. Will uploading the newest drivers fix that, or is just a broken component? Is it worth RMA'ing? Waited almost a month to finally get everything, would hate to send it back over something silly like this. Anyways, i cant contain my enjoyment And thanks for everyones help along the way.
