Default Finally built.

Well I've been planning a new computer since I started on these forums. I've been using a Dell with a pentium 3 533 mhz and I even upgraded it to 512mb of RAM
So after 10 long months I've finally upgraded to a computer that was made in the twenty-first century

It might not be the mammoth $1500 super comp I was planning but hey its a big jump.

Athlon 3500+
2 gb of Corsair RAM
6600gt (soon to be replaced by an x1800xt )
MSI RD480 Neo2-fi motherboard
160gb Western Digital SATA drive
Fortron 450 watt psu (36a on the 12v cant beat it for $50)
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro cpu heatsink/fan
Kingwin KINGWIN SK-523BKP Case
and a couple combo drives.

So what do you guys think? Not bad for a semi budget machine eh? Now I can actually do things without lag woohoo!:firstlove
