Takign a long time to get the cash but I figure in another 2 to 2.5 months it should be done.

Then I can start again with cpu gpu and mobo lmfao. just for fun though. i know the performance will last for a logn time with what I have. but I can sell off these parts to a buddy and upgrade myself with little extra money. only dent will be the GPU cause I didnt wait when I should have. ^^

Akubane, Good choice on the Z-5500's. I've had them for about 18 months now and they are awesome. Great sound quality and they get nice and loud.

My desktop system is a bit older, whereas my laptop was purchased around Thanksgiving.


AMD 64 bit 3000+ Single Core
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum
Corsair 4x512mb PC3200 DDR400 Ram
XFX Nvidia GeForce 6600 256mb PCIEx16
Sony DVD-Rom
HP DVD-RW Dual Layer
WD 16mb SATA 250gb HDD (2)
Maxtor 8mb IDE 200gb HDD (1)
ThermalTake 420w PSU


Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422
AMD 64 bit Dual Core Turion TL-58
ATI Radeon X1200 series 128mb dedicated (shared up to 319mb)
DVD-RW Dual Layer
15.4 Widescreen
1gb DDR2 667 RAM upgraded to Gskill 1x2gb DDR2 667
Came with Vista Home Premium, downgraded (err, upgraded) to Win XP Pro SP2.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my setup. The only game I really play is Ultima Online, which a computer 10 years old could run with a smile on its face, therefore rendering my desktop "state of the art" by my standards and for what I need it for. My laptop I have for portability of music and ease of working on files at school and my future job that I should be landing in the next couple months upon graduation.

Overall, considering I spent 550 for my desktop tower 2 years ago and 550 for my laptop at Thanksgiving, I really can't complain for what kind of performance and productivity I've gotten from them!

Also forgot to mention - My dekstop has a 22" 5ms ViewSonic widescreen and is hooked up to my 220w stereo system.
There's no place like /home.

My specs in sig, all of my systems I got for cheap. My HP I got back in 2003(?) and upgraded most of the stuff in it, my laptop I got used on eBay and upped the RAM, and my Compaq was actually a Celeron 500MHz that quit working, so for $100 I got enough components to re-use the leftovers from the HP and rebuild the Compaq to a decent new computer (not for new games, but for old games like Jedi Academy, hosting JKA server, and Web browsing it's great).
