It looks like one of your cards is blocking a Silicon Image SATA port, can you confirm this for me?

Yes, it is, even if i bend the wire dramatically it's blocked, unless you'd like it pushing on the card.

What makes me wonder is .. do you guys buy your stuff using credit cards or do you use cash ?

I'm the type of person that saves up and buys and I'm sure a lot of us are but some of us are probably the crazy credit card type that end up paying it off for a long time !!

dynamiks ... you are aware that you're supposed to HEAT-shrink right ? Apply a flame or hair dryer to the heat-shrink unless that's how you want it to look :eek:

lol, obviously I know that if the rest of my heatshrink came out fine besides the USB wires. The heatshrink was too wide, and the smaller size was too small, so I shrinked it as much as I could and it still wasn't enough, so I had to settle with it the way it was.

Got a 9500 NP with L shaped RAM coming in off EBay I'm hoping will softmod without problem. Yeah, I know, I'm a bit behind the times, but since my wife doesn't bring in any money, I don't have it to spend on anything else. But rather her stay home and take care of our son than trust him to day care.

Is the dualy set-up really worth it, cause if you want dual vide processors just get the new 3D Labs video card.
