I just built myself a new computer. The old one finally bit the dust hard.

The new computer:

XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Motherboard
-Has built in 7.1 sound, and native gigabit ethernet
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.40 Ghz Q6600
NVidia 8600 GTS 512 MB PCIe w/ Dual DVI
Seagate 500GB Serial ATA HD
LITE-ON SuperAllWrite DVD BurnerDVD+-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, CD-R/RW
4 Gig of RAM DDR2 800Mhz
700 watt power supply
250 Gig Maxtor External HD
802.11 a/b/g Wireless LAN
Windows XP Pro w/ SP2 etc...
Monsoon speakers and subwoofer
And a 22 inch LCD monitor

I should be good for...years.

(Why yes, I game, how did you guess? The incessant screams and gunshots from the Medal of Honor series coming from my office?)

Wow, that's very nice, I really wish my Graphics Card and processer were better, but you know Laptops, no upgrades unless you buy a warranty.

Nice box, Redelle smile.gif I wonder what I'll end up building when the time next comes to rebuild Lugh...
And I'd love to find myself a few new SCSI hard drives for Cerridwen... Then I could really play with RAID and zfs smile.gif... got to replace those 4 GB drives first though. most of them are flaky. At least the 9's are solid enough.

Thanks. Building also saves a LARGE amount of money, as well you know. Buying a box with those specs costs 4 times what I paid for the parts. It's not bleeding edge, but it can at least see the edge, so I shouldn't have to upgrade for awhile, and when I do there is room.

LOTS of room, case-wise, actually, and spare parts scavenged from the old computer that still work. Thus I have a floppy drive, ZIP drive, and another CD/DVD drive from the old computer which I put in storage as I don't REALLY need them, but it's nice to have them in case I want to pop them in the box.

I was intimidated seeing your builds. Linux always gets a salute from me. There is some nice variation here.

I've recently changed my computer arsenal a bit.

I still have the Sun E420R going with the A1000 RAID that has 400GB using 12 36GB Sun disks, with the 4 UltraSPARC II CPUs and the 4GB of ram, running Solaris 10.

The SUN Ultra 60 is just crunching SETI @ Home stuff till I decide what to do with it. Running Solaris 10.

Got this Powerbook G4 Ti1000 that I use for web, email, burning images, watching videos, chatting, programming, etc.

The new desktop I built to retire my old p4 system is this:

Q6600
Evga nForce 680i LT SLI
4GB Corsair XMS 6400C4 ram.
160GB and 74GB raptor
(36GB Raptor from 2003 at WD for RMA, failed Raw read write error with SMART, it's critical by manufacturers for drive failure). Check your drives periodically. After I get the old raptor back it'll be in this machine, too.
Evga GeForce 8800GT 512MB G92 video.
Creative X-Fi extreme audio (pci-e)
A nice Enermax 720W PSU.
Zalman CNPS9500 AT Cu HSF for cooling

XP_X64 is the OS cause I use it to play games when I'm not being a grad student.
Otherwise it'll be used to build some sort of linux os in the future, probably. Or maybe I'll goof with x86 Solaris with it.

And a soon to be retired dual p3 I got going just chucking seti@home stuff
and I use for LFS and CLFS related support as of now.

I have a 486 machine I need to get rid of

I also have a whole other p4 without HT machine to get rid


Here are links to pictures of my desktop and my network/server rack:

Ahoy mateys,

Update, I received my replacement drive from Western Digital, today.
I RMA'd my 36GB raptor and they sent me an email they were awaiting stock to replace it. Upon opening the packaging and reading the documentation I noticed
the model number wasn't my original drive.

They had sent me a WD800ADFS, a WD Odyssey 16MB cache SATA II 80GB disk drive!

Holy cow!

So now I have a new and faster drive than the original 36GB drive, plus my warranty was extended 188 days when I registered the drive.

Wahoo, thanks Western Digital, you guys rule.
