    It's a shame it is already obsolete (technological advancements theoretically doubles every second).

    Nice build though.

    Not having the skills, let alone the time to build my own, I had to resort to dumping $1800 to Sony for the latest and greatest in laptops. I do know what is involved and I can appreciate your efforts.

    Next time, get 3 matching HDD (or better yet SSDs) and a RAID controller.

    Oh, and use Ubuntu instead of Windows :)

    Question: You have no Blu-Ray and are not a gamer, so I'm assuming this is not a home entertainment machine. Why did you want HDMI?

    If I may ask, why did you chose the "ATI Radeon HD4670" over other faster cards?

    The MoBo has onboard RAID but I have no need for it at the moment. As for SSD's they are still not large enough and are very expensive. I backup often and I will always run Windows and I love Windows 7. I have used flavors of Linux before and I don't have anything against it but I need to know what I support. My clients don't run Ubuntu.

    I wanted the HDMI out so I could connect it to my HDTV. Much more fun to view pictures on it.

    I choose that video card because of the price and it had HDMI out. It also had positive reviews and fit my needs. I have the ability to run 3 PCI Express 2 video cards in SLI if I desire. Granted I would have to upgrade the PSU but I have options later on down the road if I desire a faster GPU.

    I was going to ask about the video. You did not list the ati card in your original specs so I was wondering if you were indeed using on board video, and sound?
    Then I saw the updated list of components. Since you forgot to mention the video card in the original post it's clear your not a gamer. Gamers live for the newest greatest card.
    I'm not a gamer either but I am a computer geek. I tend to lead more toward programming than hardware though. I have rebuilt several systems over the years though.
    I do have to admit I am impressed with windows 7. My daughter machine, a Dell see got when she went away to school has been a pain in the area that meets the chair ever since she got it. Windows XP. We put windows 7 on it and it behaves much much better, It only took Microsoft 20 some years to finally get it right, or at least close to right.
    I plan on building myself a system maybe next year. This computer is 10 years old and starting to need a little TLC. I'm still running Windows Millennium.

    The Asus P6T does not have onboard video. It does have onboard sound but it is fine for my needs. I did not notice I left it out in my original post.

    If you are a true computer geek I hope you have seen Pirates of Silicon Valley. A true computer geek will have viewed it many times.

    Yes, it is time to build a new rig. I remember when I worked for Gateway and they gave us all a free copy of Windows Me.

    Just got a new system myself. Dual-core something-or-other. A friend of mine built it as a custom gaming machine, but the guy he built it for backed out.
    It has a cool blue light inside with a glass side wall.

    I love the wiring runs!!!!!!!!!

    It looks easy to work on, if ever needed. Nice installs.

    I just got a new solar calculator with BIG keys
    You'll love the big keys!

    If I started right now I could probably be as smart as you guys are right now by the time I die, but you would continue to get smarter.

    I wish I had some clue as to what any of that stuff even is.

    I didn't get left behind, I just didn't get on the bus.
