Heh.. yeah, I guess I'll buy the NSK2400 instead of waiting for a couple of months for the NSK2450 to become available in Sweden.

But I agree that my P150 is everything I could wish for, even though it took a fair while to get here ;) (3 NeoHE replacements).

Now, I don't know anything about this particular program, but it seems weird that a dedicated graphics card would offload any processing from the CPU, unless they are using for some kind of stream processing (are they?). In that case I guess it could be worth the extra heat/noise since that is one p...

The NC8430 that a colleague has does get a bit warm after a bit of use, and spins up it's fan for a while (which is actually pretty loud). This, however, was in Windows Vista so perhaps it's aero that is stressing the video card (x1600).

Re: Antec Fusion but what CPU heatsink?

My other unrelated issue with the Antec Fusion is the lack of IR receiver. The reviews indicate there is sufficient space to retro fit a receiver next to the VFD, has anyone done this? What IR receiver did you use? I just don't like the idea of an external IR receiver. Check out the next revision o...

I'll be in the same position in 1-2 months, and it really feels wrong to pay about ~$150 more for the fusion just for one stealth-dvd... but I'll probably regret it if I get the NSK2400 and end up staring at a black DVD-RW.

I can't answer your other questions, but I'm pretty sure that DDR2 actually consumes less power than DDR, thats one of the advantages (besides frequency scaling).

Now I can't really remember from my own P150 build, but on my P160 (which also had stealth drive bay covers) you could move the thing on the inside of the cover that the external button triggered, so that it would work with different CDs/DVDs.
