    Heck yeah!

    For sure I thought that since you have a 9800 that you gamed, but having dual monitors draws so much juice also, not including the applications.

    Warning: Nerd-Out Imminent! Take Shelter!

    Self-built PC based around an Athlon 64x2 processor. This rig was originally built in 2004 around an Athlon 64. Since then, the base has remained the same but the processor and GPU have been swapped, and RAM has been added.

    The motherboard on this particular machine is maxed out at this point, so in another year or so, it's going to be time to build another, but I'm happy with the lifespan I've gotten out of it. $1700 in parts for a PC that has lasted over 5 years is fine by me.

    For those particularly interested, the current guts are:

    Athlon 64x2 4200+ (2.0Ghz) OC'd to 4800+ (2.5Ghz)
    2GB Mushkin DDR400 (yes, you read that correctly)
    Nvidia 8800GT 512MB (stock 625/900/1570) OC'd to 700/975/1760
    SeaGate 160GB HDD x2

    All locked up in a Cooler Master Centurion 5 with high performance Silverstone fans slaved to a fan controller. All the OC'd clockspeeds are 100% stable and air-cooled.


    For those wondering, yes, I game, though not as much as I used to. Careers and other interests (mainly mountaineering and now off-roading) take more and more of my time away from PCs these days.
