This is going to be on my "if I had the money list". Right now I have a p4 2.4ghz w/ 1 gig ram, 2x250 gig SATA150 hard drives in raid 1, 2x120 gig ATA133 hard drives in raid 1, dvdr/rw, ati radeon 9800 pro. I want to replace it when the 4800's become more commonplace I think.

Didn't shop around for prices really.. tigerdirect had some better prices that could save a few hundred off the final price tag.

You make an "If I had a million dollars" wishlist and you don't go SLi on the video card?

Oh, and I'd recommend all of your cooling be Zalman. GPU cooler, CPU cooler, northbridge, case fans, everything. The next wishlist I make will have an entirely watercooled Zalman setup. [grin]

I went for something I actually could afford, but am not willing to spend the money right now. =P

Besides, I've never had a problem with one video card doing the job.. let alone multiple video cards. I think people get the multiple vid card setups w/ SLI for the bling factor.

Your current set-up is amazingly close to my current one [oh]

With 4x250gb disks... you going RAID 1+0?

Oh, and why's the links to your viewsonic monitors feed back to your journal? I wanted to look at those (they sound good) but, well, its broken.

Of course they do!
