I rebuilt my system (again) over the weekend. The rear zone fan went out on my mother board. Upon returning the board I was able to work a deal to upgrade the board & processor a notch.

I have been building my own systems since the 8086's. For those of you who are not old like me... They operated at 4.77 mhz. and had 640k of ram. I like building my own systems because I get to choose what goes into it. It is very slightly more money, but much more dependable.

Here are a few pics and the basic specs...

nice fast system you got there, Bobc... 800MHz frontside bus and a gig of RAM? my son would kill for one like that for gaming!remember when they said no one would ever need more than 640K? LOL!

you look a little under powered on the 12v line... what PSU are you running?
Curious about the DVD drive... duel layer one?
Its a real hunt to find the media here.
Juat another thing, what kind of GPU are you using?
I'm interested to hear the PCI-e trip is working out for you too

Good stuff Bob, hell I had a 4.77mHz 80806 no HD two 5 1/4 floppy drives, monochrome screen, would you believe I ran v2.1 AutoCAD.

I build my own systems too you can choose what you want
Initial switch on can be tense tho' till you get the POST beep.

atm I have a centrino 1.7G notebook 80g HD / 512m ram dual/DVD burner n/w to my desktops.

John, Bob

This system builder thing is kinda catchy :blah: as I build my own as well - expect for my laptop which is an ibook G4 - desktops just an Athlon 2500XP/1GBRAM/160GB Hitachi Deskstar.
