Default Teh new stuff.

I have come to a conclusion on my new build. It's more of an upgrade, but I'm pretty much upgrading everything.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 Toledo
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
eVGA 7800gt
WD Caviar 250gb, sata 3.0gbs
2x Panaflo 115cfm 120mm fans (loud as ****, thats why I'm getting....)
Thermaltake XCONTROLLER 5.25 bay fan speed controller.

Whaddya think?

yeah, some 'upgrade'... yeesh. That's a build if I've ever seen one.

Otherwise, smooth sailing. Enjoy.

Must be nice to have money. I would just get the 3800X2 and overclock it to the 4400 speed

I actually decided on a different hard drive. It still has a 16mb cache, 250 gb, but it is a maxtor, it is sata150, and it has NCQ. Oh and I decided to just get an Athlon 64 3700, I know they are HUGELY different, but I decided I didn't want to spend 500 bucks on a cpu.

nice revisions, how about changing the XCONTROLLER to something else? Sunbeam rheobus maybe? The knobs on the XCONTROLLER are pretty cheap.
