Three things:

A) Terrible formatting!

B) Nice system.

C) Did you want anything? Advice? Comments? Or just to make me really
jealous? That's some serious graphics power, what you gonna do that needs
that *right now* instead of later when prices drop? (As they always do).

And 4) Nice system, there's nothing there I'd change if I had the money to
buy it myself (except maybe the HDDs. I'll never forget the earlier IBM
"Deathstar" range. That said, they're probably fine). I hope you're going to
get an after-market CPU cooler and overclock it. Otherwise the RAM (With the
pretty flashing lights, hope you have a clear side on your case) is
overkill. You may be able to get a mild O/C with the AMD HSF but I wouldn't
bother if you have pockets that deep. A few extra bucks spent on a better
CPU cooler could well mean more power and longer component life / more
margin for Murphy.

However, that would mean a self-build.

Craig, I assume they install XP so, if you have a RAID setup, they will
temp. hook up a FDD to install drivers?

Sounds a bit high IIRC.

Hell, I can get a Sony DRU810A (rebadged Benq DW1640) for $159 from the
Sony Shop.

I'd probably go for 4x320GB instead of the 2x500gb disks. But my, is that
expensive. If you live round chch I'm sure we can do a deal (:

Yeah I could always wait until June for the next generation amd's.... new
pin packaging new mother board type etc. But hey the old p3-450 is begging

Nah that ram was released for that particular motherboard. I don't really go
in for whole case modding scene thing.

see release here

I'm still fine tuning the system I may as yet go for a lower cpu and maybe
ditch the cardreader
