i'm more of a AMD Nvida man, but i'm not going to give you advince on hardeware. What i will tell you is that what ever you do when you are bulding a pc is don't get fustrated, if you get fustrated you fail lol, that what happened to me and i broke a very expensive video card. And have fun builing, your fist time building a pc will always be your favorite. Also,be gental with the Motherboard. You hit that wrong or scratch it, tht can cause all sorts of headachs. Well, have fun budy.

Anything more than 320GB HDD become un-economical unless you are limited for space, like 1U racks or SFF.

320GB HDD costs about £62.50 now, were a 500GB costs about £130. Its easy to see that the 2x 320GB HDDs would be better value. Also has added benefits of if left un-raided then if one drive dies you'll only loose half of your data.

I have a lot of money from the sale of my house and servers. I also had a job which I found boring but paid very well.

and you still wouldn't give penny less hackers stuff you where getting rid of :cry:

I gave away high-end IBM and Sun systems, to a couple of penny less hackers that attended the 2600 meeting I went to. If I had met you at my local 2600, you could have had them.

I have to wait for the stuff to get delivered but that’s all the equipment I own, not included the laptop I’m on now.

When is the next 2600 meeting, and will you be there? :lol:

I haven’t looked to see where the closest one is, but I will be attending the next one. :D

There used to be 2600 meetings in my home town but they stopped taking place a year before I got my drivers license. Needless to say I was increadibly pissed. They didn't want to keep meeting with only have 2 or 3 people showing up each time.
