Strictly for home use it's overkill but still humble compared to what others have.
File server/32-bit Oracle server:
IWill MPX2
2 x MP2400 processors
2 x 512Meg Crucial PC2100 Reg. ECC.
3Ware 7500-4LP EIDE RAID Controller with 4 80Gig WD SE drives running the RAID5 mode.
ATi 9500 Pro video card
Santa Cruz sound card
3c905 NIC
Antec TrueControl 550w PSU
Enermax fake Antec server case
OS used: Linux SuSE 8.2 Pro using ext3fs and reiserfs.

Test toy and future 64-bit Oracle server:
Tyan Thunder K8W
2 x Opteron 240 processors
2 x 512Meg Mushkin PC3200 Reg. ECC Low Latency (http://www.mushkin.com/epages/...3/Product/View/991125)
1 LSI U320 PCI-X 64-bit 133Mhz SCSI controller
1 Seagate 15k.3 U320 73Gig SCSI hard drive
1 Seagate 8Meg cache 120Gig EIDE hard drive
BFG FX5900 video card
Audigy 2 sound card
Enermax 550w EPS12v 'server-class' PSU
Gigacase YY-W201 server case (http://www.gigacase.com/Produc...ail.asp?product_id=39)
OSes used: Windows XP Pro; Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition; TurboLinux 8 for AMD64.

Will post my workstation 'puters in the appropriate section later.

I wish I could have afforded more than the 240 procs but the other hardware was needed as well. For gaming the the Opteron is slow due to the 1.4Ghz proc (since only one instead of the two are being used) At least the BFG does much better than the 9800np I tried on the Opty system. BTW: This Opteron system is very quiet. Good job on the fans on the procs AMD.

Because I have the 9800 (non-pro) on my other computer (I have four).

Abit NF7-S with XP2500 oc'ed to 2.2Ghz. Has two sticks of Corsair XMS3500C2 512Meg each residing in a CoolerMaster ATC-201s case. Using 2,2,2,3 timings.

Er, I'm not a gamer so I don't need the highest level of video cards. However, I'm might get into FS2004 which due to the problems with the CAT3.8 drivers for FS2004 it sounds like nVidia is still the way to go. Plus I got tired of waiting for ATi to get off it's duff for supporting AMD64 drivers in Linux. TurboLinux 8 for AMD64 has been out since April (not beta) and yet ATi still has nothing. nVidia on the other hand has AMD64 drivers.
