    Asrock Dual Sata2 939
    Athlon 64 3700+ @ 2.76ghz

    XFX Geforce 6600gt
    Soundblaster Live! 5.1
    WD 250gb
    Windows XP Pro.

    Not exactly a "show off" rig, but it plays CS:S and WoW on max and thats all i need it to do.
  2. Here is mine. Not exactly a show off rig either, but it has room to be upgraded.

    Will probably get an energy efficient AMD 64x2 6000 later this fall then get a 2nd 1950GT to crossfire and I will have a much more formidable gaming machine.

    Specs:
    MSI K9 Platinum AM2 Motherboard
    AMD 64x2 4200 (65W)
    2 Gigs Kingston Hyper-X DDR2 800
    250 Gig Western Digital Sata Drive
    Sapphire Radeon x1950GT
    700 Watt OCZ Technologies Game Stream PSU
    LG optical drives

    Profile: addict

    These are my system specs...........
    This is my version of a budget system,
    simple all-purpose rig that does what it's told,
    No overclocking, 3DMark06-8771
    Boot time to loaded desk-top in 1.18 minutes
    _____________________________________________

    Case: Thermaltake full-tower
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6811133032
    I set mine up with a pair of 120mm fans in the front,
    the chimney vent has a 120mm fan, another 120mm fan on the back wall,
    above that is a 90mm fan drawing air thru the removeable HDD cage.
    ______________________________________________________________

    PSU: FSP Group 700W
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817104026
    I can't describe how reliable and solid this PSU is,
    I don't have to worry each time i boot the system,
    It works long, hot days and never complains.
    ________________________________________

    Motherboard: ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813131011
    There's a reason this motherboard was elected 2x winner of customer choice award.
    _________________________________________________________________________

    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.6GHz
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819103759
    I've always had good-luck with AMD, there are better choices but it works just fine for me,
    waiting on K10 prices before upgrading to the 6400+ 3.2GHz version.
    __________________________________________________________

    CPU Cooler: ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6835109140
    It's big and ugly but it's the next best thing to water,
    Yet another 120mm fan as the Heat-Sink does not include one.
    _______________________________________________________

    RAM: Geil 4 x 512MB DDR2-800
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820144020
    Runs Cool and quiet, 1.8V RAM, works great.
    _________________________________________

    GPU: EVGA 8800GTS 320MB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814130082
    EVGA has a great step-up program, plays all my graphics-intensive
    flight-sims with settings maxed out.
    ________________________________

    GPU Cooler: ThermalRight HR-03+
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6835109136
    This is nothing more than a HR-03 with 2 more heat-pipes and larger mounting block.
    Chalk up a 92mm fan to supplement the awesome cooling power.
    ________________________________________________________

    HDD: A pair of Seagate 320's in RAID 1
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6822148140
    These are so nice that I'm adding a second pair and reconfiguring for RAID (0+1).
    _____________________________________________________________________

    Monitor: Viewsonic VA1912wb
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6824116074
    Very similar to mine, great picture, built-in speakers.

    What is that green light underneath your monitor? Is that a cold cathode? Is that thing wired directly in to your computer or is it wired in to an AC outlet? Does it give off much heat? How did you do that? Where did you buy it?
