Muz, I just finished a big project and I was paid nicely for it.

I know what processor I want, but I don't know what motherboard, PSU, and RAM I want. And after dropping money on new hard drives yesterday I have to wait.

I can't believe you got two of those 150 GB's, nice dude. Did you get the drives with the Windows, or save the 30 bucks per and get without?

If you ever even suggest doing that, well I don't know what I'll do.

;) I'm kidding. That'd be kinda cool.

Matt, why stick with intel on the new system?

Consider going X2 or other. Have one of each :)

The 950 is decent, but I am spoiled by on-die mem controllers :cool:

My home system is so much smoother than my opti at work.

Intel is good too. I use them both. Work is Intel, home is Intel, and an AMD (cost effective)

I don't know what you would do either, but it would be damn sweet to look at. Probably only worth it if your case itself had a side panel with some cool LED sh*t inside though ;)

I didn't get the "Raptor X". I bought the regular version. I don't plan on buying a case with a window.
I assume you meant hard drive, not case :)

Heck, why not just get 1,000 Processors :eek:
from your posted article said:
"If you can put 25 CPUs in one FPGA, you can put 1,000 CPUs in 40 FPGAs," Patterson said during a symposium here this week at UC Berkeley, where he is a professor of electrical engineering. Such a computer would cost about $100,000, he estimated. It would also take up relatively little space--about one-third of a rack--and consume only about 1.5 kilowatts of power.
WOW.

D, I didn't buy the Raptor with the window, and I don't plan on buying RAM with LED's because I am not going to buy a case with a window that will show the internals. To be honest, I like the style of the XPS 400 case and will likely look for something similar.

Saz, when that time comes I will be sure to bug you for help.
