Hey Nelson, Since I play in this industry, I was just wondering why you need the extra horsepower or is it just something to do? BTW, that is second one I've seen that way in the last 6 weeks. The other guy is a PC game writer/player in his spare time.

Thanks in advance for the response.

On His Ride,
Steve

You're gonna have to sell a lot of meat to recover that cost. The power supply alone looks like it'd power a small city!

Hey Steve

Yes I do some online gaming Mostly Battlefield 2 but I also hate waiting for anything and the extra punch is the ticket !!

Bob ...It really wasnt that bad cost wise If you built yourself. One thing that really sucked was I bought the AMD chip when it was still high around 700 bucks that was 8 months ago ....you can buy the same chip today for about 250 now that hurts. Has to the power supply...Never be cheap on PSU they make everything work.

looks great

After having built two in the past and having a son who does it for a living for Uncle Sam (USAF), now stationed in Djbouti South Africa, I understand the frustration with trying to get everything to talk together.

FYI, with that much RAID, backing it up will be no short feat.

The cause of you hiccups may be the lack of a flux capacitior. Adding one, should make that puppy fly!
