Built it in summer 2007. The processor is the bottleneck. Can't be bothered upgrading yet since I can still run most games on max (interestingly I can run Crysis on max but Far Cry 2 only on medium, whereas most people have it the other way around). When I do upgrade though I'm going to ditch software RAID and either get a 10K hard drive or buy a proper RAID card (since operating systems still see two hard drives dispite the RAID, which makes partitioning a bitch. A RAID card would make the operating system think there was only one very fast hard drive). Because upgrading involves buying a new motherboard, I don't have much impetus to do so yet.
Oh now you're just being modest. Well, at least I could add that I too have a couple 10,000 RPM drives, though only 74GB Raptors. Yours have bigger claws, not fair. Man, I'm in serious need of speed. I must be the most outdated regular here spec wise.
:lol: You're not, trust me...

What I should've bought in the first place, in which case I would be replacing only the CPU instead of the whole damned thing! [quote=Mr. Pedantic;4785071]:lol: You're not, trust me...

I'm afraid Pedantic has you, Omen! I'll be the first one to say, I don't blame any of you for holding off on upgrading though. The whole world is in a recession right now, computer parts are ever increasingly expensive, and you have to find just the right combination of components for it to last long enough to mean something!

Oh, yay. Another bragging thread! Not that I mind these...
Primary rig currently consists of: ASUS P5K Premium WiFi-A/P Intel QX9650 @ 3.61GHz 2x2GB Patriot Viper DDR2-800 2x1GB OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2-800 Palit HD4870 512MB M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 Four WD hard drives (hosting Intrepid Ibex, Vista, random storage and music) Cooling and housing is in the process of being upgraded at the moment. Power provided by a Seasonic M12-500.
A secondary 'modern' rig is almost complete, but for a cooling solution and case to house it: Intel DX48BT2 Intel E6600 2x1GB OCZ PC3-10666 eVGA 7800GT M-Audio Revolution 5.1 OCZ 520W GameXtreme
Also have parts of an old AMD-based build (ASUS A8N-SLI Premium, San Diego-based 3700+, 2x1GB OCZ PC-3200, eVGA 7800GT), a complete and functioning Northwood build whose CPU I just can't bring myself to give up (ASUS P4C800-E Dlx, Gallatin-based Pentium4 2.4C--the infamous M0-stepping SL6Z3--2x512MB OCZ PC-3700 and MSI 6800GT). I'll stop there, because I'd have to actually go look up specs on the Xeon box at this point, and the rest of the boxen are too antiquated to bother posting here.

As the sig says. Only things not listed in the sig are my second monitor (awful 19" widescreen, AOC I think), my TV card (Compro VideoMate E800F) and my eSATA box which has a pair of 1TB drives and a pair of 500GB drives in it.
1) Sell off the UA-101 and Rokit RP-6 monitors, use an ASUS Xonar HDAV 1.3 sound card and replace the Rokits with a stereo amplifier and speakers - in addition to using it as a sound card I use the UA-101 to get more than one input into the speakers, but it's clumsy way of doing it.
2) Replace the eSATA box with a NAS box. Although the PC it's attached to shares my file accross the network I don't always want that PC on to have access to my files.
3) Swap the 8800GTS out for something newer, but this one isn't a massive priority.
