ok, so i made myself a new computer, an i wanna know what you all think of it. I dont really have any personal friends that know computers either so...dont be to critical please. I am new to the whole computer area, but i am going to college for Electronics in Pittsburgh, pa. So i know how the component side works. and also does anyone know a good program i could use to 'score' how good of a build it actually is?

32bit Windows Pro OS
450W BFG PSU
M4A78 Pro
Phenom 940, can OC to 3.4Ghz
4GB DDR2 1066Mhz
XFX Radeon HD 4850 Video Card - 512MB DDR3 (soon to get)
1 Sata 500GB 7200RPM Seagate HD
1 DVD dual layer burner
1 cd/rw 'ultra speed' drive
1 card reader
1 Firewire port, upfront
1 Viper ATX case w/ LED dysplay
1 Blue 120mm fan
1 Red 120mm fan
1 Blue 80mm fan
37in 1080p - Vizio LCD 'monitor' w/ HDMI

Looks good the only thing I woulda done different was the 32 bit OS and maybe gone for

Newegg has a deal right now for 64bit Vista home premium for system builders for 79.99

And seriously a 37" monitor? WOW that is monsterous..

um considering the 64bit OS, but i just used a 32 bit cuz it was onhand an free.

I got the viper case from a local computer store a few years ago, but the computer in it was crap an blew up a year after i bought it, system 32 error : /

but the Vizio was origonally for the 360 cuz its 1080p but i was like...wth...use it for a monitor an watch DL'd HD movies, lol

also use a 22in LCD Westinghouse monitor sometimes as dual aswell.

heres a pic or 3 of the comp itself.



it did have 3 red LED fans but 2 of them broke : /
