Thanks, I come around when I can, but it's all work dependent. Sometimes I have loads of free time for weeks or even months at a time and other times I'm swamped for similar periods of time. I closed my office for all but phone calls today and I'm getting ready for a nice long weekend of PC Gaming, F1, and playoff b-ball.

Do you still have your 1900XT, or did you swap it for the GTS?
Sold the X1900XT in Nov. to buy an 8800. I got into Gears on my 360 and that combined with work gave me nearly zero time for PC gaming until Feb. I didn't see the point in paying a high price for a card I wasn't going to use much so I waited and ended up saving a lot of money when buying my GTS. I actually bought a Foxconn GTX a couple of weeks ago, but it died and Newegg didn't have any more stock so I just took the credit and went back to the GTS. I just built a PC for an uncle and he was getting a GTS so I took the opportunity to upgrade to a GTX and leave him with my GTS - oh well, it didn't work out so I just got him a 320 meg GTS for $265.

BTW, congrats on you 2900XT. I'll be looking forward to seeing your results with it on water. I actually bought almost the same PS as you because I've seen all your posts and research on them (I got the 1000w). I bought it in anticipation of actually going crossfire. It looks like I'll probably wait for the next gen of cards, but if your results on water are exceptional I might give it a shot.
