hhaah had to LOL at R31 Nismoid! nice one for getting the e8400 clocked to over 4.1ghz, how does it go on a 40 degree day? are you running that all the time or do yuo "declock" quite regularly? .... nice work! Are you doing that through BIOS?

My setup?

Case:Coolermaster Centurion 5

Motherboard: Gigabyte EP35-DS3

CPU & CPU Cooler: E8400 clocked just a bit to 3.3 ghz running a xigmatek cooler and managed by a schweeet zalman LCD fan and PSU controller, very blingy but lets me control everything!

RAM: 4gb 800mhz ram, do you think its worth going the 1066mhz or not worth it??

Monitor: 22 asus splendid monitor

Graphics Card:Ge force galaxy 9800GTX 512MB (might need to go a 4870 soon?)

HDD(s):2 yummy 500GB HDD's running in raid format so 1TB in total (600GB still left to go)

OS Used: Vista

Peripherals: Logitech G15 version 2 and logitech 7100 laser cordeless mouse (eg)

Also using an amazing sound system through fibre optic cable a yamaha TSS-1 5.1 PC home theatre system, $400 later and smiling :-)

Also running a corsair 620 watt PSU

Just a quick note as well for you all, my zalman controller tells me very accurately home much power/watts i am using, i recall people (not in this forum)saying you will need 500watts plus to run high power munchin games, as a note i have not yet seen the power hit 500, i have now seen 471 watts but that was under high load! now although i do recommend high quality PSU's if you have a system like mine 620 is MORE than enough.

Will see how much more power is used with further clocking of the CPU and a better GFX card.

Haven't upgraded in about 5 years. Still plays all the current games on either low to medium graphics. Used to have RAID 0 but one of the HDD kept failing (i think due to the case vibration). Case is riced up with neons and LED fans. Still use a CD burner, DVD drive and DVD burner. This PC has been running pretty much 24/7 overclocked since i got it, its all old school now.

The video card crapped itself about a year ago. Do you know how hard it is to find an AGP card nowadays?
