Maybe I haven't been following, but Blue, did you replace the GPU and had the same problems? All problems you mentioned seemed to point to corrupt GPU with artifacts, etc. Most likely from a previous over heat?

Problems are similar with a different GPU. As for other questions, I know the 3rd gen and 4th gen i5s are priced similarly, but the 3s apparently overclock better than the 4s. The point about wanting a stable system is quite valid though, so I'm not sure how commuted I am to the overclocking... I imagined it might make for interesting discussion here, but imagining further discussion of my computer not working right makes is a little nauseous. I indeed may settle on the idea of a 4th Gen i5 and air cooling. Still working it out, and it looks like that pcpartspicker site looks like a great help.

Also, a footnote about my Corvette: The car has 113k hard miles and 14 hard years on it. It serves as our second car, has as much value as a decent used Camry with less wear.

Finally, I see these rollover ads have returned and will get on the case. Please forgive me if no one is available to address this before tomorrow since it's Sunday.
