my 'other half' builds 'em... I had to ask him. hehe we have a 'few' computers.... some in bits and pieces... just lying around.... I'm actually on the server, this is why I need a 'new' comp. for ME... just for my artwork
I still dont care what people say, intels maybe ahead of AMD in production, but they will never ever surpass the level of quality AMD has to offer. AMD chips run so much smoother especially for the gamers. The new AMD 64's act like 3+ghz chips regardless of only being 2ghz or 2.4ghz

I constructed it myself when mounting the motherboard I cutted my finger (not purposely) in a metalic part of the box and made a blood pact with my computer, so as long as I live, this computer will work
yeh well considering i LAN, Game and create on the same box it's served me well.. starting to come to a point where there are new games that are just unplayable. But hell i can still play the odd bit of BF1942, UT2004 and ET im happy great long lifed work horse i say!
