    I recently upgraded to an Athlon 64X2 4200+ windsor. You may want to consider overclocking, because the 4200+ has been known to push 2.8 ghz

        oh it is overclocked a bit....pushing 2.5ghz and after gaming my cpu is at 38C, gotta love aftermarket coolers!......and
        I do agree about modding big cases.....I have a custom purple paint job on this badboy.....almost an exact match for the alienware purple

          Let me guess a Gigabyte DS3 motherboard?

          What else do you have in there? I see a thick cord around the RAM/CPU area...water cooling?

            My guess is air cooling and an AMD based system. :p

              Oh, never mind, I see now those silver cabling is from the PSU.

              Kudos to Sarc for pointing out the AMD I overlooked. :p

              So is the Gigabyte sticker for the video card or what, if your mobo isn't Gigabyte? Or is that a old case you are reusing?

                Re: My semi-New rig

                used to have a Gigabyte board but it crapped out on me so I went with Epox, then I wanted to go dual core so I went with an Abit. All in all I like the Abit the best. Hopefully in a year or so I can step up to the AM2 socket and also the 8800 series cards with Vista, but a wife and 2 kids kinda take all my money. Anyone ever notice how rich they were when they were single???

                  By that time, you should skip to AM3.

                    Ha, 939 for the win!

                    I'm living out 939 for another year :)

                    It was a #[email protected]%& to find out that 939 went from good to terrible in the past 6 months alone.

                    My motherboard is a piece of junk. :(

                      I've got an Epox Nforce4 Ultra+ (939 Socket) motherboard and it's still running plenty strong. It's young, only two/three years old yet.

                      I had been using a Dell 8200 (Pentium 4 ~ 1.8Mgz) for the past 6 years prior to this custom build. The Dell machine is still running strong, happily serving the wife.

                        yep thats the epox board I had.....I liked that one also, the Abit seems to be a bit more tuned for Overclocking.
