hi, i just built my comp recently, but i don't have any pics yet, but it is blazing fast, with a striping raid on 2 sata hdd's as boot device, that is within limitations of my cpu and gpu.

it take about 12 seconds to boot up


---Specs---

Raid set:
-120 sata hard drive, wdc wd1200JD
-160 sata hard drive, wdc wd1600JD
memorex 16x dvd dual layer writer
1 Gb ram(2x512)
xion 450 watt
xtasy 256 mb ati radeon 9600 agp 8x
abit kv8 mother board
d-link dge 530t network adapter.
amd althon 64 3200+(754) 130 nm 2.2ghz , newcastle
thermaltake tower 112 pure cu heat sink
450 watt xion 2 case, 3 case fans
a fan on both the north and south broidge
large 90mm fan on the heat tower for the cpu

Not bad, how much did it cost you? And congrats on getting your new machine up and running. Merry Christmas (or happy holidays i guess)

Very nice. At that cost you have a real good system. Just too bad it isn't socket 939 for upgradeablititly (and some extra features)... but then again am2 is almost here anyway.

Plz tell me your gonna overclock! If whatever ram that is can take it...

Dont bother with the 36gb raptor not worth it. Either go with just a fast 7200rpm, two of them in a raid or a 74gb raptor.
