    The temps look a lot better now, but you know you can take a screenshot right, I just think its simpler
    Mobo...............Asus P5N-SLI (NF570)
    RAM................2 GB Kingston DDR2/667 CL5
    GPU................Evga e-GeForce 7900GTO 512MB
    CPU................Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 2MB L2
    HDD................Hitachi 160 GB IDE
    Disk Drive.........Sony DVD+-RW 16x IDE
    PSU................BFG 650W (on sale for 80$, 80$off!!)
    OS..................Windows XP Home SP2
    Sound card......Sound Blaster x-FI xtreme music
    Overclocked somewhat w/Arctic cooler freezer 7 pro
    other info: saitek eclipse red backlit keyboard
    cheap micro innovations wireless optical mouse
    logitech x-530 speakers (5.1)
    18" viewable KDS CRT monitor (I'll upgrade when it dies)
    about 8 80MM fans and I sleeved most of the cables
    It would be quiet but I have 1 noisy Vantek that blows like a turbine. A crappy generic case which with cammo paint and holes all over.

    You press print screen then open paint or whatever photo program you want then you right click and select paste. I think if you got a good water cooler you could get it up to 3ghz easily but you should read reviews about said product first.

    seconded : many kits are barely, if at all, better than air cooling, unless they have a double 120mm fan radiator, then you can do the graphics as well.
    also imo (really is just opinion!)
    watercooling should only be used in conjunction with clear pipes and side windows so that you can show it off!
    thats why i hate thermaltake for bundling black pipes with their kits

    My specs
    am2 x2 4800 oced to 2.76
    300 gig sata
    2 gigs corsair xms2
    700 watt ocz gamer xtream
    2 7950 gx2s in sli

    i dont know the mother board actual name but its a ASUS 32x something one of their first motherboards released for am2 it has the 590 sli thing

    I think u have An Asus Crosshair mobo.Your machine is rocking & I don't think if u buy 2 8800 GTXs, u will get sky high Frame rates in Tomb raider Legend.As, someone has already said, TR-Legend doesn't support SLI so u'll get only 1 GPU performance although if u have an SLI setup.

    If u can get a good burgain,then I think u can get those GTXs.

    By the way, which Nvidia driver version r u using on what Operating System ?
