I also noticed that CPU-Z sees 2GB of RAM, when I got to look at the memory tab it shows 1GB in slot one and the rest as empty. Thanks.
I've taken a screenshot of CPU-Z's results, but have no idea how to put them in my post, any help?
Right, cheers for the help, I can't get a pic just yet but I will have one by tonight. The case is pretty standard with touch screen buttons. Would it say in the bios if I was running a prescott? I'm not quite sure if the thermal paste was replaced as my Dad did it for me. My specs are:

Asus P5R Mobo
2 Gb value branded RAM
Intel Pentium D Processor

Cheers, John.
I've just gone into my BIOS for the first time in months and it's telling me my Intel Pentium D 3.2Ghz is running at 75.5 degrees idol, this can't be healthy. I recently bought an Alaska fan and heatsink for it so I see no reason for this, can anyone offer any advice?
The Xbox 360's HD-DVD can be connected to a PC via USB, costs around 150.
  Topic: PhysX
Some of the 680i boards, like the ASUS Striker Extreme, have 3 PCI-E slots running at 16x speeds, does the PhysicsX card take advantage of this?

The 8800 was rushed to be out in time for the christmas market, I've no dought ATI are taking their time with this for a damn good reason
Spose it all depends on how much of an audiophile you are, I don't really notice the differnce personally
Hey all, my first post here.

I have recently decided to build a home theatre
which will include a HDTV and 5.1 speaker
system connected to an amp, the system will of
course, include my PC.

I was wondering how I would connect my PC with
the sub to run through the 5.1 speakers, making
full use of Dolby Surround.

I currently have onboard 5.1 audio, will I need
to buy an audio card? Preferably I would like to
run it through a digital optical cable, are there
cards that have this available and will they
make use of full surround sound?

Another question I would like to ask is is there
a lead with scart at one end and either composite
video (yellow jack) and digital optical at the
other. I realize this question is incredibly
comfusing but I don't know how else to explain it,
basically it is for my freeview box and I would to
run it on 5.1 audio.

Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Cheers, John.
