What do you think of it? :lol:

A few things actually. I reckon it's not gonna be very useful ;)

What did I miss? :-/

What you gonna plug that Athlon FX into?

Hmm, alright. The motherboard of course. Asus A8V-Deluxe. Why asked for that?

Hi,

Motherboards tie everything all together. If you want performance, your motherboard design determines the clock refresh rate, the memory update rate, front and backside caching, and a bunch of other things.

I notice that you are missing some sort of backup device for your striped hard drives. I would hate to see you post in our Windows forum that you are missing files, and need help recovering them.

I'd love to run Linux on this one, actually.

Backup device as in?

It might surprise you to see just how many people ask for advice about their proposed system, and it turns out that they've chosen a motherboard and processor which are actually incompatible. :D
