(edit)

MSI K7D-Master-L mainboard
1024 MB of Kingston PC2100 ECC REG
2x 1.47 GHZ athlon processors
Gigabyte radeon 8500LE 64 MB video card
520W TTGI powersupply
2x Samsung 7200 RPM IDE disk drives
1x Optorite DD0201 DVD Writer
Antec Sonata computer case



I hope to upgrade:
SCSI (sg 15k.3) or serial ata disk drives (73gb wd raptors)
For the controller I think the HighPoint RocketRAID 1820 has a good price/performance ratio.
Sound card (using onboard right now)
possibly MP 2800+ processors
One of those 16ms 20" LCD screens from dell

heh no job right now

Most likely I would get a few 18 GB ones, although I have a feeling I will go with the new raptors after they come out (news page on storagereview.com for details).

I was talking of the this:


From storagereview.com:

The Scoop on the New Raptor 15 September 2003

As rumored over the past few weeks, today Western Digital announces a new version of its 10,000 RPM serial ATA Raptor drive. Driven to greater-than-anticipated success by the gaming and enthusiast markets, WD’s new drives will feature the following:


74-gigabyte capacity – perhaps the most significant improvement is the migration to a two-platter flagship design.
37 GB Platters – the aggregate areal density of the new Raptor will remain the same as the first. Linear density, however, has increased, to achieve:

72 MB/sec outer-zone transfer rates – though we’ve pointed out that STR is non-consequential in the large majority of uses, some folks were disappointed with the 55 MB/sec that the first Raptor delivered. WD is confident enough with new yields to spec a transfer rate that rivals the best available from today’s disks.

4.5 millisecond seek time – current Raptor drives spec at 5.2 milliseconds.

TCQ enabled – matching a feature available on all contemporary SCSI drives, the new Raptor will feature tagged command queuing… that is, device-level reordering of outstanding requests for more efficient service times.

FDB motors – though quiet from an emitted sound-pressure perspective, the original Raptor emitted a slight high-pitch idle whine that could irritate sensitive ears. WD has been on the slow side when it comes to migrating to fluid bearing motors when compared to other manufacturers. Fortunately, the new Raptor uses quieter and ostensibly more reliable FDB motors.


There will also be a corresponding single-platter 37 GB unit. Interestingly, the new Raptors will still use an onboard PATA-to-SATA bridge disdained by many enthusiasts. When hot-swap functionality, command queuing, and the potential for blazing performance remain, however, why should we care? Performance and functionality, not PCB layouts, remain the bottom line.

When will these units hit the channel? Late October / early November seems to be the timeframe. We’ll bring you more information when we can .

i knew WD was about to release a 74gig Raptor, but i didn't know it was a new dessign - i was assuming it was merely a larger-capacity version of the current Raptors.
Thanx for the info!

I was going to wait for these, but 2 more of these will still fit on the MSI board - just not in RAID, but as Data drives, they will be more than fine!

I am probably going to buy the new Raptor if it isn't too expensive.. if I have cash to spare

Scott
Are those T-breds? If not - upgrade and try the wire trick.. probably can get 2.0 Ghz out of them on stock voltage. Nice boosts..

They are Athlon XP's
I think they were AXIA but at 1.6v not 1.5v
