Loose the IBM drive they are notorious for failing prematurely. Try either a Maxtor or Western Digital.

Id drop that IBM, slap in an ATA133 controller card and a nice lightningly fast Maxtor D740X whatever size you like m8.

Which manufacturer of the Ti4600 r u going 4 ? Id recommend a Gainward or MSI or Leadtek.

Id drop the Intel board and go for an Asus or Abit with Intel chipset rather than a board made by Intel, you might think your getting the best cos Intel make it, but you'll be wrong.

Fool you then m8.. I have warned you! :rolleyes:

You still get the same chipset, but better onboard options from Asus & Abit compared to Intel's own boards.

Overclocking HAS NOTHING 2 DO WITH IT!

why are you asking what people think if everything they say you just assume is wrong...

get an asus board, tis better, and the IBM is going to lock up on you, you'll p ay

if you just want to know how that system is I am wondering what the hell this post is doing in windows technical support/hardware?

there is no issues with the system... it is an opinion he is asking for therefore someone please move this post to the approprate place... perhaps general chatter or something...

i think you dont wanna learn from others experience,and buy wats tested and found ok.you just wanna buy that ibm,and make posts in hardware how it died sudenly.and the pc is rather average for these times,so why are you asking this silly-narcisoid question.why?

he DID say that he wanted to know what one thought of the rig being built... he NEVER asked for anything else...

telling him this and that will die is not going to make a difference based on the posts he already has put forth therefore let it be... no need to flame him...

I'm really confused, you ask for people's opinions then you still stick with what you posted, why post it in the first place?

If your happy with the setup, why post how do you think this rig is?
you thought everybody was going to jump up and down saying how great it was?
It's not a bad rig, however, you need to be able to accept that others might have different opinions on it.

:cool:

well I don't want the guy flamed as well, so unless somebody offers some good suggestions I am going to close this thread.

no need to beat a dead horse.
