    good choices. I love my Gigabyte board, very reliable.

    What Radeon card did you get?

    and what is silent pipe? I haven't been keeping up with computer hardware since I've been poor :)

    Looks good. Does your case have a window? I'll have to snap some shots of my rig (dust it out first haha). I've got a bunch of blue LED fans and a neon tube to give him some bling.

    It is an XpertVision Radeon X1950 Pro Super, 512MB GDDR3, DVI, TV-out, PCIe.

    I am poor now :p

    Well, silent pipe is basically just a heat conductor system which conducts the heat away from hot components on the mainboard.

    No, since the window would be on the left side, which is facing the wall ;) (see image)

    awesome, and great choice in video card.

    I have been looking at the x850xt because newegg.com has it for sale for 70 bucks. I hear it competes with the X1650s but I'm not sure how true that is. Yeah I know its old hardware but it would still beat the x700 I got as a budget card to fit my PCIe slot with my new mobo. Either way the 850 is a big step up and would allow me to run AA and AF in my source games. It's a serious consideration.

    Also, my computer currently faces the wall like that as well, but now I am thinking of moving it to the floor (since I have started using DAEMON tools to image my CD's, ie no changing disks). Just need to move the sub out of the way.


    Looks like you have a great setup.

    Thanks! And it works already, everything is installed, I am quite happy. I was hard work to enter all those license keys for all that software which accumulated in my collection ;)

    Thanks :)

    As for the sound, while at the computer i often use headphones, but it is also connected to my AV receiver & sound system (via the white cable channel on the left wall, can be seen in the image) in case I need some bass ;)
