i have used it and i thought it was pretty good. i did not like nortons or mcfee. i really hate the control suite that is installed with it.

i also use avg antivirus. it is free and works great. i have never had any problems.

i took the shim off of my 9700pro when i watercooled it and the temps dropped a extra 8c from when the shim was on.

i dont have the guts to do it to my 7800gt, plus my temps are running 43c idle and 49c full load.

they do seem to be pretty similar.

i know opterons are hand picked and go thru more testing for stability because they usally run in servers.

i do agree that one 7800gt will run fear at max settings.
the real advantage of sli shows up when you crank the AA and AAF way up.

i am debating between another 7800gt or a opteron 165. either one will be a good boost for me
