    Agreed, I'ma start reporting posts as being off topic :laugh:

    It's a nice little 2 bay unit, that is expandable and very configurable. I'm in way over my head here with trying to configure the damn remote access. I'll start a new thread, yeah I need that much help.

    Everything I have read, even Maximum PC, state that, Kaspersky trumps Norton in detection, though Norton does beat in Kaspersky in one area scan time:eek:. Norton is crap, even if you redesign a turd, it's still a turd, even if it has improved, I refuse to use it, because their customer service is as effective and helpful as smashing yourself in the face with a rock :banghead:. It may be better than it was, but it's still crap in mine and many others books.

    I wanted to replace this Antec 300 with, a Lanboy, but 220 dollars is just too damn much for some metal struts a mobo tray, and some screws and mesh, if it was say 140 I would maybe bite, but it's just way way over priced, which is a shame.

    Wiring is a mess I know, but the temps are good.

    Oh and machine stats are :
    Mobo : ASUS MA785-M
    CPU : AMD Phenom II 550 @ 3.6 Ghz @ stock voltages
    GPU : Onboard 4200
    RAM : 4 Gb Kingston DDR2 800
    DVD drive : ide DVD burner I had laying around
    OS HD : 120 gb WD ide drive
    HD 1-6 : 4 Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB //\\ 2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB all in Jbod
    PSU : BFG 800 watt (It's a piece of trash so glad they went out of business!)

    It sure does, I also have a XFX 5450 that's usually in there, but I loaned it to my brother so he could play FFXIV open beta, and he hasn't sent it back, though I'm looking at grabbing like a 5770, or maybe even a 6 series, or a GTX 260 or something so it's gaming grade, so I can game on TV.

    Nice, but IMO Lian Li is overpriced for what you get.

    I can't get the thought of selling my second rig, HTPC, and laptop for a MacBook Pro out of my head. Someone talk some sense into me!

    SJ if you do that, I will forever label you a Macfag. ;)

    Why would you want one anyways? There's nothing they offer that a PC doesn't do at half or less price.

    DON'T DO IT!

    Macs are overpriced, prone to overheating, don't run Linux well, and aren't at all customisable. I declare it heresy that you'd even consider one!!!

    Here are a few good reasons. People also forget just how different the Mac OS is compared to Windows, with there being no registry and such. Some dude on another board was able to list like 50 solid good points about OS X that Windows couldn't beat.

    I've just always wanted to try one for myself, for a decent amount of time. A good thing about Macs is their resale value, it's crazy. Plus if you buy it in the store they'll fully refund your money within 30 days if you're not satisfied.

    College could be coming up and it would be great to have something quick, reliable, and overall very nice to use (compared to my current Gateway).

    Just a thought :rolleyes:

    Don't do it. Go the hackintosh route if you need OSX! (I bought a copy of Snow leopard though, which I was able to use to install SL)
    Got it working on my SR-2, which is absolutely awesome considering how I would've have payed considerably more if I'd gone the mac pro route.

    It is high time that you lock yourself in your closet with a flashlight, a Penthouse, Hustler, and a Swank, and don't come out until you've filled your mind with enough smut that there isn't room for such rubbish.

    If you just want it for OS X, find a friend with a Mac, format a drive, and make a hackintosh. :p

    Anyone seen this HAF X side panel on 932

    I wonder what other pieces fit. Either way I like that panel and think I'm going to replace mine with the X.
