    Flawless and fast! Unfortunately my old Viewsonic P225fb appears to be on it's way out. For a while when I boot up it kicks out of sync (turning the monitor off/on fixed it) but it ran fine after that, never doing it during normal use. Today while typing an email it did it, and the old on/off fixed it but it doesn't look good....

    This site is fantastic, glad to see Gigabyte appreciates you!

    Great to hear it!

    Bad Viewsonic eh? How old is it? I am looking to get me a new monitor, is this a brand to avoid then? I am using a 20" Dell now, left by a customer, but just want a nicer one. Any suggestions on what are the good, decent priced brands? I haven't a clue about monitor as I do not game so Have not had much need for a nice one.

    It's about 3-4 years old I think. I have an old Viewsonic G800 (19") running next to it that is at least 2 years older, no issues. I'll go LCD next.

    For under $300 I like the 2ms Samsung 22" - Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2232BW+ Black 22" 2ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1(1000:1) - LCD Monitors

    Sub $500 the 5ms 25.5" (if you have room) - Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2693HM Glossy Black 26" 5ms DVI HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height/Pivot Adjustments 400 cd/m2 DC 3000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

    @GaryR

    That is a nice monitor for $229 for sure! Wish I had the cash for it now, but I wont have my cash for a monitor upgrade for a month or too. Hope to find a nice deal then. $479, no way! I could find much better uses of $$ then that, but then again I do not game. I would take one for free though for sure!!

    @BroncoBob9

    You will have to set a few things for sure to be stable at 400 FSB or more. Thanks for posting your specs, can you please fill this in with what you are using now and I will advise back some settings for you to try 3.4 with >>>>

    @LSDMEASAP & BONGWIZARD:
    Thanks a ton for the info!! I put these specs into my PC this morning and it booted perfectly. I'm running Prime95 all day while I'm at work and if everything is cool, I'll post the exact specs I used (a few items were different).

    Also, once I get it stable, I'd like some advice on which things to tweak for more speed! :)
