here's my new specs:

E8400
Gigabyte UD3R Mobo
Gskill Pi 2x2GB DDR2 800 4-4-4-12
WD 320GB HDD 16mb cache
EVGA 8800GT
PC P&C 750W
Windows Vista Home Premium 64Bit
Sunbeamtech C.C. Freezer(Fricken HUGE)

Anyways other then the cpu heatsink being a bit of a B$%CH to get on(it is on and works very well, I must say), everything went together fine. I however ran into 2 problems...1. ntune makes me blue screen when I try to start it(all the time). 2. I play COD 4 alot and now every time I start it up it crashes with the "iw3mp.exe" error, after about 30 secs of being on a server. Other then those two problems my new pc flies. I have oc'ed it to 3.5ghz and Everest couldn't get my E8400 to go past 50*c . I backed it back down to 3.0 for now till I get the kinks worked out of my system. Any help with my issues would be greatly appreciated. About the only thing I can think of to do right now is run memtest86 or swap my new memory out with my old to see if it might be a bad stick of ram. As I said previously, thanks for the help in advance.......

Don't use ntune. Uninstall it. Overclock from the bios. If you really want to, use Gigabyte's Easy tune 6 to overclock the cpu. Use EVGA Precision for the gpu. Google the error in cod4. It's a bug.

hey guys, sorry I didn't get back to ya sooner but everything's running fine now. Thanks for the help. No RR this is a new HDD. I must say, making the switch to Intel was really worth it...this thing is much faster then my last build...just need a new GPU now
