the whole rig??

core 216 = 250
ocz ssd = 80
tri channel kit = 140
core 192 = traded for my 2 old 4850's
xspc waterblock = 40
1kw psu (epower 120 amps) + 780i (trading for rma) = very special deal of 250 dollars
liang d5 vario pump - 60
dtek - 60
2 delta fans - 20
smaller hdd's from old system pulls
320 gb hdd - also from a trade long ago


and no.. i don't ever use a case :p

just recently sold the ol' qx6850 and 2gb of ballistix tracers... the 780i is next to be sold once i get the rma back!

and the tv i bought from a friend last year for 1k... funny how its value has went down TREMENDOUSLY since i've bought it.. can buy the same size tv now, with double the contrast and 120 hz for 1400 dollars... this tv new was that much just 1 year ago!!!

lol, ya i even got the minifridge next to my computer area for maximum computer time.. hahaha so even when i'm hungry.. i don't gotta leave my chair!!!!

i took a few nice pictures.. even recorded a video running 3dmark06 for that run... i'll have em up and running once i figure out why my stupid card reader isnt working

i'll have some ocz ssd action on monday when that comes in... hopefully i don't encounter any of the stutter i've been reading about from random writes

and that cpu score blocks my mind.. i still can't believe it

once i have vista up and running again... i might have a 3rd gtx260!!! that could be another 3 weeks though.. but i won't have high hopes... i'll probably end up needing my money elsewhere (like my credit card!)

It's not a random stutter... It's just that those low cost SSD drives are meant for reading. Just look at the OCZ staff responses on their forums and newegg.

i meant hard drive random writes.. i've been doing alot of reading, and based on an average user i dont think i'll fall into any troubles... and i've already read up on steady state and all that good stuff so i think i'll be fine :)

it'll be just for holding an os.. it'll serve that purpose more than dandy!
