damn. After a whole host of probs, I have eventually got a working rig. I upgraded my 8800 SLI to GTX 260s, got a C1 BIOS error, mucked around with memory, got a new PSU.. then got MBR failure that I rectified. So far, so good. Then I ram 3D mark, and got a mark lower than I did with the 88s.
After the C1 error, I eventually got things working with some 800 mhz mem, as the 1066 just wouldnt take at all. I am assuming the mem controller is on the way out, as the 1066 mem works ok in my second rig. Anyways..the upshot is, I am fairly much convinced the mobo is on the way out. So, I am looking for recomendations for a new mobo. Rig spec is as below, and in terms of what I want, a good clockable boardthat can take a quaddie and support 1066 mem. apart from that, open to offers!

Spec is
Q6600 CPU
2 x GTX 260 GPUs in SLI
1000w Abslute PSU
2x OCZ SLI 1066 mem sticks
4 x 500gb HDs in RAID
2 x DVD burners, SATA


Cheers all :)

Thanks Rich :)
I had a bit of a scout, and decided on the asus striker 2 in the end. Going up to DDR3, in the long run it seemed a fair option. the rebuild starts today, so I hope asus restore my faith!
