This systems has evolved from its base build back in 2006. Pretty much built it to last me a while so iv got time to save up for a car..additions since the intial build are 4GB of RAM, the 8800, and the new case after years and years of specualtion as to what would replace my Antec 1080. I built this as my "anything and everything" system, as i cant be bothered maintaining more than one PC, hence the ample storage and heavy weight (17kgs at last check). Its also built to be dead silent, and it is possible once the HDDs spin down after a while...one of the sweetest things about the system.
