So, I was trying to see how another card would fit in my system and I came across an interesting find.
If I run my 8800GTX in PCIe 1, I get about 60 fps out of Real-Time HDR IBL. In PCIe 2, I get about 25 fps. Both slots are PCIe 2.0 x16. I wonder if there's some small architecture...
With the desire to push my Q6600 further...a box of goodies arrived:

Inside the box were many wonderful things:

So, this is my first OC in quite a while. I started with:

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (with AS5 and SFF21F)

Here's my Wireless adventure so far:
1) Purchase a Linksys WRT54G router and a WPC54G notebook card. Find out that my laptop (IBM ThinkPad 760XL) will not work with 32-bit CardBus cards without a BIOS upgrade. Until I get a replacement battery, I can't do the BIOS upgrade. So, I take the...
