I have to thank all of the good people on this forum and a special thanks to LSDMEASAP for all the good advice, help, and just all around good-guyness (not a word, but who cares it works). I had to put a build together in a short time and it had been a long time since I had done one so I was out of the loop with product changes, but the info I got from this forum was priceless and helped me put together a system that I am, so far, very happy with - it has been up for little over a week. Thanks again and Happy Holidays.
