video: 2 x pny nvidia 9800gtx severly gimped from the processor and ver 1.1 sli not 2.0
screen: 24 in Gateway HD LCD, wow looks vibrant!
BS problems with this rig: nick name "clear" I have to now hit the power button like ten times each time shutting power off until i get text from the post to "appear" and login for win xp, I finally get a heartbeat. "clear"
second: the BIOS will not recognize 3 or 4 gb of ram, wont run stable over 2gb (ghey).

video: still on the to-do list, looking for quad sli solution, money not an object.

this pc is my answer to the frankenstien 939 systems I am currently using, completion expected around christmas time frame, just need video cards and that dam q9550 proc. and maybe vista, still leary of gettin it.

so there meh thats my crap for now. I do have floppy drives but they are stuffed away in a bin somewhere and on par with admitting to masturbation....did i just ...nahhhhh.

yes I know what you guys are thinking make the abit mobo system my main gamming rig, but (BUT!) its going to cut into wow time, and thats a mighty big no!

I am lazy, I hate to think ...unless its about haha you know, and my decisions are largely based on how soon I can get back to wow, even now I am neglecting the game.....oh mad!
