Your system looks really good. That video card is nice for that price. It looks like the only difference between the P4 EE and the regular P4 Hyperthreading is the high amount of L3 cache. Personally I like the LGA775 P4 HT.

after my new build hopefully by the end of next month, I'm going to install the SP2 cd I got from Microsoft. I'm scared to death of installing it now because I have so much data on the hard drive and my computer's running very smoothly without a single problem. Hate to screw that up with the new SP install. Time to migrate over to the new SP2 soon.
