Computer Woes

Recommended Posts

I suppose this is off topic more than anything else - figure I may as well brag about the system that I'm building. Been meaning to put together a sweet workstation for a while now, so I'm using income from my first real job (whoo!) to cover it. So far, is about 1000 dollars, plus an anticipated 500 more over the next 6 months or so.


2.8 Ghz Xeon with 800 MHz frontside bus

200 GB ATA 7200RPM HD (Maxtor)

Sony DRU-540 DVD +/- Burner

GeForce FX Ultra 5950 256 MB

1 gig PC2700 DDR RAM

ASUS NCCH-DL motherboard (sweetest motherboard I've ever seen for under 300 dollars - supports dual xeons up to 3.2 GHz, plus 4 DIMMS of DDR and an 800 MHz FSB with built-in Promise RAID controller, 6 SATA ports, 4x USB 2, built-in optical audio out... hot damn)


Unfortunately, it took me about 3 weeks to convince ASUS that their mobo is dead, so I'm now waiting on a replacement. Whee. I'll be sad if this never comes together...


Long-term goals: a second 2.8 xeon, another gig or two of RAM, SATA hard drives... The works. Gotta love it.


For the curious, I'm basically waiting to get this system built before I continue the Thief model - my current one cries.
