What's wrong with Seagate? I've had much better experiences with them compared to Maxtor and Western Digital.

Same. My Seagate drives have been way better than Maxtor or Western Digital. In fact... my WD drives always crap out in about a year.

Never had a WD die within five years. Never had a Maxtor [I don't care about your foul language policy. Ban me! Ban me like the naughty girl I am!] on me either.

Looks like a solid system - the 650i chipset is rock steady (same chipset in my current box). Since you're spending some cash, might as well get 2 8800's and SLI them bitchez

maxtor disgraces the six letters that spell out matrox, as for seagate, well they have an affinity for crapping out. check anywhere online, not to mention my own personal experiences... Sad

Maxtor and WD are generally great, except every so often they have a model that just craps out.

Seagate is ehh...but they juust bought maxtor, so...

I am eyeing several of the same parts Bandit, but if I may drop the extra money to pick up another 8800 or a PCI card, more monitors will be needed. I should be getting my copy of xplane in a couple days so the 4-5 monitor option should be kept open. You know, for Panquake and simply because it is cool.

But for now I must go figure out the best way to strip IDE cables... I was foolish and did not order wiring harnesses for my converters. So now I must strip and apply quick connects two atleast one of my converters so I can have an arcade shooter setup ready for Momocon, and a Neogeo one ready for Tigerlan. Not to mention that official Ms Pacman joystick I ordered for 8080 era gaming...

Oh and Bandit, we spoke of multimonitor displays some time ago, well heres the king of them all:

And you lot who know who you are, dont even bother posting that 100 projector deal, that is not even feasable in most cases.

OK so the wife is telling me I'm a bit high. I got some points for explaining to her that ATI/AMD aren't holding up their end of the market pressure, so prices are generally higher this time for the same level of jump up. (remember I buy every year so she is used to me spending)

So guys, what would you cut back on and why? If I get down to 1500 she will be happy, I can get away with less cutting than that. Honestly I could get away with this whole purchase, but I'm trying to win some points, without loosing too much functionality.

What do you think?

Loose the wife and get a more expensive computer








</jk>

But anyways, you could possibly cut down to 2GB or ram and just use your old hds and opticals....

Btw, is that GeIL 4GB pack any good? (I've not built a computer in several years, so I don't remember the good companies.... Although, I just realized you could easily put 8GB in most mainboards these days Razz)

The hard drive idea is a great one. I have a number of spare drives right now, that are in a linux raid. I could rip some out of that. Great idea.

I really hate dropping down the ram, but I guess you are right I could live without 4 GB for now.

Geil is a good company, not an off brand. That is about all I can say about them.

Ok I stepped down the ram from 450 to 390 in price but in doing so went from CAS of 5 to a CAS of 6.

but at $60, I think its worth keeping the 4 gigs. Other than keeping the older components, I dont think there is much to suggest other than doing it in steps.

4gb worth it -

Btw bandit, I would suggest changing your PSU - you shouldn't require 850W, even with all that hardware packed in. See about picking up a 700w. And you gotta make sure to buy quick - newegg likes to play the rebate game and change prices on you in a short time.

Know that if you go with 4GB, you'll only be able to use ~3GB in 32bit XP/Vista.
