In regards to overclocking the Radeon 9600XT, I was able to get it up to 585 MHz core and 335 MHz memory clock without extra cooling!
Next week I'm going to get dual 76 gig HDD's in RAID 0 configuration.

Hmm, nice bit of Overclocking - the question is how long will it last like that?

Is that two 300Gigs or two 150Gigs? Eitherway its a lot! Whenever I have to format mine (I have a non-SP1 install of XP) I have to format the last 30Gigs in Windows and Merge the Drives. Its really annoying.

I didn't really keep tab of how much I spent, but I started with 13,000 and after all the components, case, 20" CRT monitor etc, I was left with around 1,500. This was a "the sky is the limit" system.

How do you post a pic on this site, cause I wanted to show the one that I mentioned first?
