*Sigh*
Yes cause that's what we needed, more roadmaps!

At least the first Quad Phenoms aren't too far away, we'll see how they hold up against Intel's Quad range at some clock speeds...

Well, they're all supposed to be backwards compatible AFAIK...And if you go for one of the Agenas with a lower TDP you might not even strain your PSU any more than you do now.

The shuttle 450W are a phenomenal piece of work...can handle anything you throw at them. There are many out there with the 300W shuttle PSUs that run the dual slot cards with no issues.

Dual slot as in 8800Ultra or as in GTS? ;)

I've got my eye on a 400W Shuttle XPC though, tis one sexy thing, plus it would save me some headaches with PSUs, cases and motherboards fo sho!
I don't have the funds to go for anything high-end anyways, but the highest I'd probably go, GPU-wise would be a 2900Pro...Should be ok me thinks.
