    Hey Nate89,
    Sounds like an awsome system.You have my favorite case as well love the style and not to mention ammount of cooling fans in that thing.

    I'm currently running an older system.

    AMD Athlon XP 2400+
    1 Gig PC 3200 Ram
    Nforce 2 A7N8X
    Radeon 9800 AGP
    Lite On DVD +/- RW
    HP CD-RW Writer
    Standard DVD drive
    Maxtor 40GB Main drive,120GB slave,80GB 2nd slave
    500w Anten PSU
    Antec LanBoy mid-tower lightweight case

    Never really tried to benchmark it mainly because the processor is locked.

    PIII 800 underclocked to 600Mhz
    Nvidia Riva TNT 32Mb
    6 Gb HDD (5300rpm) IDE
    9 Gb HDD (10k rpm) SCSI U160
    LG DVD RAM drive
    SuSE 10 (official not OSS)
    Titchy little fan
    1.44Mb HD FDD

    Sorry none of those benches will run on my system but I can give a couple of stats -
    Solidness = 100%
    Heaviness = Very Heavy
    Age = 5+
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    Another old system...

    Intel Celeron 2.60GHZ Northwood 400MHZ FSB (looking for a Celeron Prescott)
    256MB DDR 400 (looking for Corsair Value 512MB DDR 400)
    MSI 661FM2-LSR Mobo
    SIS Mirage Graphics (looking for a 9600XT)
    Seagate Barracuda 5400RPM 2MB ATA 100 HDD (looking for a WD 7200RPM SATA drive)
    Realtek AC 97 Audio
    Standard 17" CRT monitor (looking for a LCD one)

    As you can see, this is a low end system, but I hope that i can make it a mid range one

    Well you can probably attest to the Heaviness = Very Heavy statistic Rik. My lowest spec system is a PII 350 underclocked to 233 (MoBo only does 66Mhz FSB) and it happily runs Windows Server 2003. It's a little slow if you are in a rush and are trying to work at the console but it serves well as a DHCP, DNS and fileserver when no-one is at the console.

    Although I could dig up slower systems (one of my Power Macs is a 166) that's the slowest one I actually use for anything, in fact it also runs PHP, MySQL and IIS because I used to use it to host the WebCalendar application for appointments.

    I still can't type faster than it can take.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    heh heh. My "old" system is running all my Linux distros...in fact I just upgraded it about 2 months ago from a C300a (running @464mhz for about 5 years) to a PIII 550 w\512 ram.

    My BIG box is a PIII 1gb w\512 running XP Pro...

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
