Aristotle13Who needs a floppy nowadays? thumbdrive or cd's work just as good if not better nowadays.

I'm straying a bit off topic here, but...

I threw in one of those combo floppy/7in1 memory card reader drives in my build. That way, I could keep the nostalgic floppy drive (*sniff*) and not waste any other drive bays with a seperate memory card reader unit. I think I've popped in a floppy once in 4 months. Besides, if my wife was to want to use one of her old floppy document backups, I wouldn't want to try to explain why we didn't have one. Marriage is bliss. ;)

FWIW, I also bought a 1gb Corsair thumb drive for the day to day file transfer uses.

If you're going to upgrade the processor anyway, you may want to save some money and go with a cheaper processor.

if he upgrades to cornrows (conroe, core duo) he'll need a new mobo anyhow, although it's 775, a vast majority will not be compatible with cornrows.

Iconcur go with an 805 as it is way cheaper and you arent throwing away a great processor. The 7950 is a great card but hot you are going to need some good ventiliation on your case. And if you upgrade to dx10 card later why spend big bucks on a 7950?

One thing I've learned in my 5 years of a happy marriage, if momma bear is not happy, nore is anyone else. I have an external floppy that's never had to come out of it's original packaging. And all of my floppies nowadays have been transformed into uber leet cup saucers! LOL :p
