    Very nice.

    But the GeF7800 is out already... :p

    Also, I don't see why you got the 80gb SATA, at this point, maybe should've gone straight to 2x200gb raid0. Or is there some performance thing I didn't really see.

    Also, its probably gonna house alot of movies, music and other data files (any programs run often should be on the dual raptors), so you don't really need it to be fast.

    Blow some money, get the FX57 :p

    Other than those things, that is an awesome PC!

    80 gigs

    I had the 80 gigs from my last system, I was struggling with the choice of getting a set of huge drives for a raid array but chose the raptors instead.

    Personally I think the 380 gigs i have is fine. I have more than enough space for program storage and besides that the only media that I really save is MP3's wich is only at 56 some gig right now wich eqauls out to about 12,000 some odd songs. As for other media such as movie's I just burn them strait to vcd or dvd. I dont really enjoy watching a full movie on my 19" monitor rather pop them into the dvd player and enjoy with some beer, a big screen and a recliner :D

    However I do see a nice 200 or so gig usb drive in the works to back up all my important stuff like mp3's, pictures and programs

    Thanks for all the compliments....

    As for the price, not sure on the final tally since i ordered part by park over a period of a few months but id say a little short or above of 2k on the case alone.
