Yes, I'm new. Yes, you can mock me. Lots of love, I've been a fan of the site for way too long now I'm upgrading from a P4 Dell system. This is my first build, although I've worked now for a PC repair shop for about 6 months. Here's the shorthand of my specs (detailed ones in profile) Dual Core Celeron for fill in currently... will have fun OCing this guy. Waiting for a 45nm Quad Core that is worth it (maybe a 9x multiplier down the road??) Zerotherm Nirvana 120mm Abit Quad X38 Board 8GB HPC Reaper from OCZ DDR2-800 Cooler Master RC-690 OCZ Modular 780W Diamond 3870 X2 Seagate 7200.11 750GB x2 in RAID 0 (onboard RAID) VisionTek TV Wonder 650 PCIe x1 Vista 64 / XP 32 dual boot (about 100GB for XP of the 1400) Logitech 2.1 Speakers, 200W output! I'm looking for a new powerhouse that will handle high-end gaming and HDV video editing. Obviously, I'm waiting for the nicer quad cores so I can overclock and chew up frames in Sony Vegas for video editing. In the meantime, an overclocked $60 dual core should be fun to experiment with and will still handle my casual gaming in the mean time. I've got all the parts en route and am excited to start the build. If anyone sees anything grossly in error, lemme know now ;-) I look forward to posting with everyone!
