Ok well rather than cluttering up another of my threads, might as well start a new one since this will basically become a worklog.
The new build.
5x seagate 7200.10 750gb drives
arctic freezer 7
ultra grid case with ultra 500w psu
2gb corsair xms2 ddr2 5-5-5-12
msi 8500GT video card
hauppage 1800 capture card
vista home premium 32
This rig will be set up in raid 5 for a total of what i hope ends up being around 2.5TB of storage space after everything is said and done.
And for the first update, everything is installed, but when i boot, it hangs at the gigabyte splash screen
Can't get into bios to see whats going on, so on to the fun part of disconnecting everything until i figure out what the heck isnt working.
