    That is a nice setup, now my turn to share.

    This was a custom build forced on me by repeated problems with an attempted HP order.

    Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP
    Mobo GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+
    CPU - AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+
    PSU - Antec True Power Trio TP3-650 650W
    RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    DVD-R - LITE-ON DVD Burner
    HDD - Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM
    Video Card - GIGABYTE GV-N210SL-1GI GeForce 210 1GB
    Wifi - TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N Adapter

    These are not the best parts, but they were handpicked by me for a stable Linux based system on a budget.

    FYI. If you need a PCI-E wifi card, the one I got uses the kernel based ath9k driver so it works out of the box.

    That looks beautiful. I saw that same case at BestBuy when I purchased my "Soprano" chassis.

Pentium D 3.00 Ghz dual core not overclocked, 8 Gb ddr2 ram (system only recognizes 6Gb though),2 300 Gb 7200 rpm sata hdd's running on raid, lightscribe dvd burner, media inputs such as yellow rca video, red white rca audio, and S-video inputs, 6 ch digital audio output (5.1 dolby) HDTV tuner card, fm tuner card, Linksys wifi 54G internal. Graphics card is crap though. Not bad for $17.68. I need a high performance 6700 series graphics card, but the cheapest I can find one is $70.00 + tax. anybody know where to score a cheaper one??? I wanna do online gaming (Star Wars Old Republic).

    That's a pretty nice system Rubberman!
  • saqman2060saqman2060 Posts: 777

    I have the model that is still in construction. When the assembly is finished I'll post it.
  • saqman2060saqman2060 Posts: 777

    You got a monster there bro. Like the dual monitor setup :-)
  • Goineasy9Goineasy9 Posts: 1,116
    Thanks Istimsak. I got used to the dual screens, and they come in handy when I'm trading stocks.
  • marcmarc Posts: 647
    I rather have *three* monitors :D

    Maybe someday.... hehe
  • saqman2060saqman2060 Posts: 777
    Wow Rubberman, you machine is better than mine. Can't compare to Intel CPUs :-)
  • saqman2060saqman2060 Posts: 777

    Did not know you like to play with stocks.
  • woboylewoboyle Posts: 501

    I used to write risk analysis software for the options trading industry in Chicago. To trade stocks/options effectively, you really need dual HD displays (or more), plus a REALLY big pipe... :-)
