I will soon be adding an i7 2700k, 8GB of memory and an Intel Desktop board Model DP67BG Extreme Series. I'll be pleased when it is installed. Also, I wish I could know why my hard drive was acting up like that, I would have liked to provide knowledge to the masses haha. P.S. my signature does not want to save on here. Clicking on the save signature button just takes me to subscribed threads O.o

Edit (12/08/11 @ 11:45PM) My signature is showing.... so pardon that before haha
