This I got as an X-mas gift for good grades and had to be my best xmas gift yet....
My Fan controller, left to right: Voltage gauge to front 120mm fan; left swtich is to control fan speed; sound pressure gauge; and CPU temperature gauge
After earning some good grades, my dad finally said yes. I know I've always had some addictions to the computer (games etc), and not so good grades also led to the answer "no." But putting that all back, my dad finally said yes. so im sooo happy. My friend custom designed it, then we ordered the parts and my friend assembled it.
Here are the specifics
Chassis: CoolerMaster Centurion 532 aluminum Mid-Tower ATX case, came with a 430 watt power supply unit
Motherboard: ASUS A8N-SLI deluxe ATX motherboard
CPU (the best part): AMD64 4000+ Athlon (MAD FAST)
RAM: dual channel mushkin 1 gig of ram
HD: Western Digital Caviar SATA 120 GB 7200RPM and a secondary Western Digital IDE 120 GB
GPU (the other best part): eVGA GeForce 6800GS 256MB SLi Ready PCI Express 16x, I'm saving up for another so I can run an SLi (system where it can run two videocards as one unit) so I can have 512 MB of video memory
Here's my video card (the one on the left) next to my other video card that was bought after market and was in my other PC
This thing is mad fast, so fast I don't even see the Windows load screen pop up on startup, and everything is click on demand.
These pics are a few months old. About a month ago, I added the Plextor PL-716AL slot drive which is a great drive.
