    I have a 6600. Wish I had a 6800 but for the money 6600 was the only way to go.

    XFX. It works great. Can't support the resolution and AA I'd like but I didn't really expect that(that and I like 1600x1200 so thats asking a lot of it).

    Jethro - Same case as me!

    K10 - Try and go future proof. SATA, PCIE, AMD64 if you use AMD, big case, lots of fans

    Sides and top are off since the weather got hot. Shes been running warm in the higher temperatures. Time to think about another watercooler.

    Vapochill anyone???

    I have one of the original vapochills sitting in my garage. Anyone interested? The newer processors require a adapter upgrade but if you are running an amd xp or older it would work.
