I 'm in the process of putting together a C2D system. It's not really about getting something faster, gaining 2000 points in 3DMark06 or upping ones FPS by 10-15 frames.
I speak only for myself, I just love to mess around with technology. Computers are amazing! Look at all that is rendered and computed from and with only 2 discrete states.
It's more exploratory.
P.S. I take EVERYTHING apart!
