Just a thought, I'll get of my soap box now.
I agree the hardware changes so fast that it can take a while to catch up with drivers, patches etc. Especially if you went for vista!!

BTW do you play crysis with your system? If so do you have any tips for getting the SLI GTX's to work with vista 64 etc. My brother has a very similar quad core rig and is having real problems with SLI GTX's, striker MB, vista 64, and Crysis.
