    thanks! i'll try it once i get some money.....hope it works better. and do any of you know if it's worth it to buy into a AMD 64bit? i might get one. right now i have a 2.4 and i was thinking about getting a 3.0 but then the 64's came out and for me to get one i would need to spend around $300-400 and for a 3.0 it would be a lil less than $200....so what do u guy's think? 64 or 3.0?

    P.S. the 64 i'm looken at is clocked at 2.4 in intel speeds.
