Oh I know Judas, thing is my ethernet driver wasn't even loading initially, hence why I used the DVD. I always throw them out (every IT guy knows lol!). However, my concern is will it do the same when I reformat next time? That I have to reload the drivers manually before begining? Edit: specs edited (and my signature too since I had a new sound card for a while now). 6-cores with HT and 32GB is excessive, but ehhhhhhhh! I'll put up some pics later on to show it off.
