UPDATE!
As a GFX card I can now pick either the ASUS GTX580 DirectCUII or the MSI Twin Frozr II/OC.
Thoughts?

If you really want the story... I had an MSI Motherboard which had constand BSODs after replacing everything in the computer, it was narrowed down to the MB. I RMAd the NEW motherboard, they replaced it with a MB someone else had RMAd. It had more problems than mine did, but I expected a new MB. They refused. I called tech support(on my bill they don't have a toll free #). The tech rep said it was my fault the MB wasn't stable because I couldn't run the ram I had in that MB. I asked if that was true, then why is it on your QVL list. His response was OH!. His next statement was that my problem was I needed to upgrade my CPU. I told him that this was an AM3 socket, and I am running a PhenomII X6 CPU, and asked what CPU would he suggest. He hung up on me, and since then MSI has refused to respond to phone calls or emails. The MB died and is currently residing in the dump. That is the abbreviated version, but MSI has seen the last dollar they will ever get from me. YMMV. That story is the unabridged truth.

Guess DCUII wins because of that and non-reference PCB

That's why I didn't tell the story the first response. You may have great luck with their card. Also, I am the last person you want to ask about video cards. But, that is my experience with MSI. The one thing I don't understand about that experience is, if they were going to send me a board someone else had RMAd, why did they keep my board for 6 weeks before they returned anything.

Be sure to take a lot of pictures during the build. I want to see. It looks like a great system. The only thing missing is an SSD. You are going to love it. Have fun. Let us know if you run into problems.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
