    HandBrake BluRay DTS-HD to DTS

    recoding the dts-HD to dts is a little dirty. Use makemkv to rip the Blu-ray. When ripping just select the base dts sound track and leave the dts-HD on the disc. Then pass it though handbrake and use the dts pass through for the audio track.

    Is upgrading from X58/i7 920 to Z68 /2600K worth while?

    I'm running a very similar setup to you. I've seen an i5 2500k running and yes it is faster. But imho not that much faster to make it worthwhile an upgrade. I've yet to come across a game that makes my i7 920 sweat. Maybe native SATA3 would be handy other than that though I don't think it's...

    My PowerMac G5 Build Log

    Late suggestion... What didnt you mount the psu in the front at the bottom and leave the HDD bays intact? then just run a kettle extension from the back panel into it. Like on the Lian-Li A05.

    Wierd issues with new i7 build, cant install OS

    60gb IDE HDD and 1gig of ram... Seriously you would have been better off with a cheaper core2/phenom2 setup and a shed load of ram and fast HDD.
