    Pretty nice..I finished my first build when I was 16. One thing though, you really need to clean up your processes and what not...50 is kind of high for XP. I'm sure you can get it down to around 40 or so...mine is currently running at 37 with all my normal stuff turned on.

    it was at 50 because i ran all those programmes at once, at the moment just running itunes and msn its at 43 =)

    Congrats.

    However, I have a small complaint that can be summed up in two words. Cable management. :)

  14. ROFL c-Low

    Dude this is pretty good for a 16 year old... though i wouldnt be flashing that round as there are so many little teckies now days.. c-low urs might have had better parts but that just shows u either spend all your cash on ur pc and have no life OR are a rich ass snob becuase i u dont spend the cash elsewerr E.G going to the movies or theme parks with ya girlfriend... maybe this modder doesent have that much money, or maybe he just has a life. i dunno. but great work man ill give it a 8/10 atleast urs is a dual core, im still in the stone age of a single core mauahah hopefully e6850 soon ;p

    I agree - it's a nice rig without a doubt. cable management, though needs to be improved a little - but still decent none-the-less. Also, as others have mentioned, get XP under control. 20-30 services is easily do-able without any ill side-effects. My setup only runs 20 services for benching or gaming; 26 when I have MSN and eplorer, etc loaded up.


    The more servies you have running idle, the more it will slow down XP overall, as every service takes up some amount of memory.


    Nice, though! With a little work that rig can be improved even more!

    same here - damn that C64 was the most loyal and most respected piece of hardware I have ever owned. Never failed me once . . .

    Nice build ibrahimbeg, It's typical teenage, big blue lights, not that that is in anyway a bad thing- I like it. I think it looks very stylish. Ignore this c 'LoW moron, it doesn't matter what parts you have, it's what you do with it that counts.

    Cable management is a bit if an issue but you freely admit that. If you want tips I'd PM user: tkpenalty, he's very good with this sort of thing. There are some others too who I'm sure would help you out with ideas.

    Very nice looking build- ignore the haters.

    lol fanx for the comments guys, as for the parts for example, ram n cpu jus reminding you lot i did buy it 2 years ago in november 2005 so think about how fast it would of been for back then and at the time AMD X2's where better than Intel's Pentium D's lool and 1GB ram was alot back then, but hopefully in a few weeks i'll be adding a extra GIG of RAM to make it 2GB, since i bought the computer things ive changed are: the case, graphics card from a ATI X700 to a ATI X1650XT, PSU, DVD-RW drive and added memory card reader :), keep the comments up! cheers

    Im 15, i built my first system when I was 12. Age isnt really an excuse to get a good score, I'm saying age is irrelevant to what you do. Check out my one

    Not bad for a 1514 year older (it was done when I was 14). :p[/immature]

    Apart from that immature rant, I'd concentrate on cable management. I dont like how those spare PSU cables are just dangling there, its not really a good position for them to be in. I'd work on trying to get the cables behind the HDD bays. Just pop over to my system and take a look at it, mainly my older one after you go to my current one, you'll find it. Its the "Challenge to Sladesurfer". Also with your photography, take notes of how to present it, as it makes it hard to see what you want to show off from that angle that you took it at, i'd work on fixing up that spiderweb of wires that I can see, use cable ties to neaten them up.
