I've got a 18GB Seagate Cheetah 15,000rpm U320 SCSI, with compatable card and self terminating cord.

I don't use them, if one of you are looking for a reallly fast drive for your OS or a program, I'll sell...

Um... could I install just the OS on a small drive at 15,000 rpm like that and install everything else on two raptors in RAID 0 to make things faster? I mean, would it speed things up to have JUST windows stuff on a small speedy hard drive like that?

the monitor is flat screen and as good as CRT monitor. I have room for one 6800gt left. I wont use that til later on. I get one now and when I need a new graphics card then all I gotta do is go buy another ( by then really cheap) 6800ft.

lol it's a really really long graphics card what can I say!?! That is why it is the best in the world. It has over a mile worth of technology on it. The problem is that I can't use it in a comp lol.
