    I'll be putting the second computer in my specs. together tomorrow afternoon and I have another inquiry. I'll only have a single 2GB stick in there right now, but there is a possibility that in a few months from now (maybe even half a year) I could get another stick (depending on how smoothly it works with only 2GB). So should I use W7 x86 and get the added stability, but have to reinstall to x64 when I add more memory (if I ever do), or just install x64 to begin with?

    Holy Mother of Mary! Looks like Christmas came early to Nebraska. That is pretty awesome. With hardware like that, I think you should watercool. Because it's just to cool not to:toast:

    That review was good. Great looking case, love that fan slot in front of the GPU area.

    Nice review. Just when I thought I was satisfied with my rig...

    Nice comp lyndon. My sister lived in the Philippines for a year. She actually got her wisdom teeth removed there for dirt cheap. My grandfather spent time in Mindanao, Mindoro, Zamboanga, Leyte, and a few others I can't quite recall at the moment.

    Got my stuff in the mail this evening so I spent a few hours getting it all set up. So far, the Athlon II seems absolutely great for the price ($60), in fact, feels just as fast as my E8400 while just messing around with light stuff. I'm a little disappointed with the HD 4200, I thought there was going to be more to it. Does this look right?

    Also, the 256MB of VRAM for the GPU is cut out of my system memory, so I only have 1.75GB usable for 2GB :cry: Other than that, here are some shots from the excursion.

    That friggen FP audio ribbon going straight across all of the other stuff, I hate it. It was a lot harder getting everything to go in orderly now that I'm using an actual mATX board with 2 drives. Before I just had one with a mini itx - mATX mix mobo. But, here it is finished.

    Nice looking build so far, how are you liking that Rosewill case? I've been looking at that one for a customers rig.

    I wouldn't say that it's horrible by any means. You can put a 120 in the back and/or the front (or some other sized fans), but it's very very bare bones. Rosewill makes like 5 variations of that case, all $30, all exactly the same on the inside. I'd say, if you're not going to be putting a whole lot into it and the customer doesn't care and won't be messing around with it, then go ahead. The metal around the expansion bays and PSU hole is thin, and it does have some sharp edges in there.

    As do I, hence why I bought it :) 1600MHz for the price of 1066 or 1333.

    Just too Bad AMD couldnt get their head out of their ass and Release Athlon IIs with 4MB L2 meaning 1 MB each core instead of just 512mb

    they didn't because then the Athlon II would have more L2 than the PII that way.
