errrr.. that spec looks so much like the one I planned to build. :p except mine was with a smaller HD and Leadtek GF6600 GFX card.

I think you should order from Dabs.com, they are cheaper than OCUK and most other online retailers.. especially the motherboard and RAM

I don't think it's clawhammer if it's 4000. I haven't checked out the new specs on the 4000's. But that doesn't sound right. Since Clawhammers were the socket 754 1mb cache chips. But I could be wrong.

Nice setup. Good choice in going with the Audigy 2 ZS rather then the Audigy 4 Pro. The only difference between them is 15db. Something like that.

oh.. the 4000+, is it 90nm or 130nm? if the latter then it's a Newcastle, otherwise the 90nm is Winchester which run at lower temps of course. :)

Scan is quite expensive for a lot of things in my opinion. Look around coz you will find cheaper prices for the same items.

Reminds me of napoleon dynamite.

Napoleon Dynamite: What kind of bike do you have?
Pedro: It's a sledgehammer.
Napoleon Dynamite: Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?
Napoleon Dynamite: [Cut to Pedro jumping] You got like three feet of air that time.

Don't see the point in RAID for home PCs. Waste of storage space if mirroring, and high risk of losting EVERYTHING if any one of the two drives fail.

Can't remember which Raid is which. guess you're not using the mirroring one. :p
No waste there, but risk losing everything if one drive fails.

All is good. But as E.Punk mentioned, you may be better off with two smaller drives. Whether or not you will use Raid, it's up to you, but two smaller drives tend to be better than one big drive.

I was just looking at the last post then noticed what ming wrote.........& others from what was said. I agree with the two smaller hard drives. You can set then up in Raid0 to get one large drive with the added performance boost. You can also partition it. Does you mother board have onboard raid? If so use it. It is very simple to set up.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
