I agree on that one Camshaft.

You do not happen to go to a forum called Ripper7Racing, do you? There is a long time member there with the username Camshaft.

Thats Fine, But its possible for PSU's to change over time. And we won't know until someone tests it.

However your right. Had he asked on this forum, I (And I hope noone else) would not have reccomended aspire.

i'd go with AM2 and DDR2 ram also. it'll be easier to upgrade later on instead of buying a new mobo and ram along with that new processor.

Why did you get two X1900XTX in crossfire

One 8800GTX, cheaper and it should outperform two X1900xtx

why do you question, you're not the one using the computer he is, if you bug him about it and say its bad you're going to make feel as though he achieved nothing in the building the computer

Agreed, I'm glad we have 1337 pro haxors like TriEclipse to tell us what we know and don't know.

Hehehe, Oh and it is not FACT that a piece of HARDWARE is automatically good because of its brand. That is like saying because HP doesnt fug up so much it is obviously a superior brand to any others that fug up.

Oh, and computers are only so in depth, no offense but there is a limit to how much more you can know vs another person there Tri.
