Thanks boss0190, I have researched it myself and have formulated a couple of ideas. Over the years on wincustomized I've read articles in the forums on questions just like mine. I've come to respect the info from the diffrent people here at wincustomize and just wanted to get some other opinions, however this is the first time I've been directed to go to a diffrent site, I thought we took care of our own here. thanks for the suggestion though, I'll go on over to Tom's Hardware now. see ya!
