Default By golly I have good stuff now :)

Usually i go all out and get the best of everything at the time. Looks like NOS will permanently stay ahead of me and i will never have a chance to catch up.

Just bout the i7 920, 2x geforce 285gtx's, and 12gigs of DDR3, and the asus board that costs like 300 bucks at microcenter(cant remember the model).... running on server 2008.

12gb is worthless, really...

And don't cry about that upgrade. Some of us can't afford all that crap.

Yea 12gb is way overkill. I run a lot of virtual machines and do a lot of rendering.

But heck,, memory is so cheap right now. 12gigs of DDR3 for about $210,,, cant beat it.

Runnin on server 2008, so it can be utilized if it needs to be.

That's because there is no purpose other than to show off.

Egggggggg-Zactly.. It's a nice upgrade And he wants to show off.

12Gigs with VM's will be nice. 4Gigs for the main system, and the VMs won't be starved of RAM, especially if thet're Vista machines.
