    How the fuck do you get the cash to do it? Christ I'm scrimping and scraping to make a decent DX10 Rig and find out I'll probably have to wait til Jan of 08 to do it... I want to cry now. Damn debt.. If only someone gave me a couple of G's...

    The money I did have I blew... Bah.

    lol.... since June 2006... I have spent around 17grand with newegg... and another 3-4grand with 3rd party providers like sidewinder computers, NCIX, Tank Guys, Performance PC's, Frozen CPU, and Jabtech :)

    Not sure, everytime I enter my credit card number, it seems to continue to approve it :)

    So what is this x38 busniss? I've been looking and now see DVD Drives are now mostly SATA... Sure wasn't that way for me back in the day. I was confident to build a new machine myself.. Figured I'd save cash etc. But now I doubt I'll do it unless I have you or someone else actually pick out all the parts for me on newegg heh.

    X38 is the new High Performance Enthusiast class Northbridge Chipset.

    Its the successor to 975X, as the current P35 is the successor to the P965 chipsets.

    Its going to be a beast with PCIE 2.0 and Dual PCIE 16x (full 16x link width)>>> If you want one of these, I would suggest waiting to mid september...

    I did a search seems 3.0 will be out in 2009. Yeah I've been looking at the Intel boards on newegg, only 1 on there that supports crossfire... And I will be staying with ATI, as I myself am an ATI fanboi.

    Woa......that's awesome! I'm getting one as well. Where did you order yours? They don't have them at newegg yet. How is the clearance on the memory ICs? I have the 1Gb model as well.

    No comparisons yet personally, but I will be posting new scores with X38 pretty soon and a different overclock with cat 8.0 whens its released , but I will be checking out Nvidias next offering :) R700 shouldnt be too far off now either...hopefully its not the R600 repeat on waiting.
