Very nice set-up. My Rig is set up on an old crappy metal desk heh and it looks ugly but hey...(it's the inside that counts!!" but my rig is all jumbled with wires on the inside too so I loose either way. If all else fails my ram can hit DDR2-1160...better than that junk XMS2 stuff (lmfao nagasama).

Still a very cool set-up and I love the drawing pad

Well I posted a link to this thread in another thread about dx10 and I didn't expect it to get resurrected but whatever.

I took about a day to put together and no my friend didn't really help. It was more like "hey, hold this flashlight" or "hold this thing while I do this" sort of stuff. He could have probably figured it out himself but it was more of a learning experience for him.
