OK, here it is for scrutiny/input/etc. It will serve as a DAW and gaming machine.
Motherboard: Soltek SL-K8AN2E-GR (nForce chipset)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (1MB L2 cache!)
RAM: 2GB PC3200 (2 x 1GB)
Primary HD: WD Raptor SATA 74GB 10K RPM
Secondary HD (.gig files and HD backups): Maxtor SATA 250GB 7200RPM
Video Card: eVGA GeForce 6800 GT 256MB
(this is replacing an AMD Athlon XP 2500+, 1GB RAM, 2 x 80GB HDs @ 7200RPM, GeForce3 64MB)
Stuff I'm keeping from my current rig:
Antec Sonata case
Delta Audiophile 2496
keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, blah blah
Can't wait to upgrade! This system should be smokin'. I should have enough $$ by next Feb/March or so to buy the parts.
